Top 11 Things Kent State Needs Right Now!
Oh, Kent State! It’s time to get hip to a few things. Your student body has a few simple requests:
- HEATED SIDEWALKS
It snows here — a lot. We’re tired of walking through Siberia to get to class on time! Winter lasts about 5 months in Kent, and in those 5 months we see about half of the student population bite it on some random sidewalk on the way to the Student Center. If we just get some heated sidewalks to melt away all of the ice and snow, life would be muuuuuuccchhh better in the short, dark days of winter.
- CHIPOTLE ON CAMPUS
Having Chipotle close to campus is nice and all, but we’re still paying out of pocket for the food. Lots us of have leftover meal plan money every semester — we can’t think of a better way to spend it than on a burrito bowl with white rice, extra chicken, cheese and guac! Can’t we make a deal with them?
- FREE PRINTING
There have been rumors and there have been petitions. It’s going happen one day! Sooner rather than later, please!
Yeah, you read that right — we said zip lines! If you’re not going to do #1 on the list, while continuing to spread classes out from Dix Stadium all the way to Rockwell Hall, we’re going to need some zip lines! Imagine it — fast, fun and easy transport from Nixson to the KSC to get lunch! (Obviously, they’d be called “FLASH lines” because we don’t associate with anything “zip”-themed here!)
- NEW BUILDINGS ON CAMPUS
Oh, wait — this is actually happening! Thanks to our amazing, generous Kent State donors, we have a bunch of new buildings poppin’ up all over the place. It’s pretty awesome what philanthropy can do for a university, isn’t it? (Go here to check out all the upcoming building plans!)
- JUICE BARS
How nice would it be to have a healthy, fresh, real-fruit smoothie available on campus? We love the one in the Rec – now please multiply!
- COFFEE CART
We already have our own food truck, so what about a coffee cart? Maybe one that travels around and makes it easy to get our much-needed caffeine kick early in the morning? Seeing that cart turn the corner when we’re running late might just save a life! You can even make it another Jazzman’s. Whatever you call it, let’s just get one already!
- FREE LAUNDRY
10. BLACK SQUIRREL PETTING ZOO
How do we not have this already? We have the pets, let’s make the zoo! This could equal some serious stress relief during finals. President Warren, please add this to your strategic plan!
11. AWESOME STUDENT ORG FOCUSED COMPLETELY ON PHILANTHROPY
