Removal of 'Fetzer Grays' signals larger issues with faculty benefits

On May 11, all clothing and basket service will cease at Fetzer Hall, bringing an end to the decades-long “Fetzer Grays” tradition. Under the current system, faculty can store their gym clothes in baskets provided by Fetzer. The gym provides faculty with exercise clothing and even washes it for them. The cessation of the service is indicative of a broader concern coming from UNC staff that the University is not supporting healthy lifestyles to the extent necessary to combat America’s increasing obesity problem.
