What would make life easier for students at Start? What would make life easier for the faculty?
There are probably numerous things one could say would make their life easier. After asking around, I found that students and staff can agree on a few things.
Firstly, the hallways. A public service announcement to those who: walk on the wrong side of the hallway, kiss their significant other directly outside of a classroom, walk as if you have nowhere to be, and even stop in the middle of the hall. It would make life easier for those of us who need to get to class on time if you picked up some hallway etiquette.
This isn’t to say that students are the only ones causing inconveniences. In fact, of the students I asked, most agreed that the lunch rush could be managed a little better. Star football player, Austin Hill says “Perhaps a more efficient lunch dismissal would allow students to get to and from lunch much quicker.”
The last thing I’d like to draw attention to is the HVAC here at Start. For those who don’t know, HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. It seems that there have been problems with it In the past and that those problems weren’t exactly resolved. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. On one end of the building, it could feel moderate, 73-75 degrees. Head over to the other end, it feels a whole ten degrees warmer. The seemingly logical thing to do would be to open a window or two in order to cool things down. The problem? Apparently, opening the windows only makes the heating system kick up a notch, making the warm side of the building even warmer. Surely life would be easier if we could dress for the season without getting too hot due to the HVAC.
We all have things that we think could be better here at Roy C., let’s face it. However, despite its crumpling structure and faulty systems, we can agree that the charming students and faculty make life here at Start worth living.
