Tables becoming sticky situation at UC Satellite

The black metal tables with the red umbrellas outside of the University Center Satellite are disgusting. They resemble the floor of an old movie theater rather than where students would want to eat or study.

And this is an area of the school that is shown off on campus tours.

To wipe the tables down just twice a week would drastically improve this area for students and visitors.

How is anyone supposed to have any admiration for a school that is trying to go green and clean up the campus if they can’t even find clean tables? All of the recycling bins in the world are not going to make up for your arm getting sticky any time you place it down on one of those tables.

This is a silly problem, but it points to a general laziness of the staff around campus. With the entire administration so focused on attaining flagship status, it is almost as if anything that does not count toward this goal is forgotten about or neglected on purpose.

It should not be this way. The campus staff should take care of the things that they actually have control over, such as sticky tables.

If the University can’t give us better parking or lower tuition, then it can at least give us the ability to rest our forearms down on a table without immediately having to rush off and wash the filth away.

Small issues on campus need to be taken care of before they turn into much larger problems.

The sad part about this is that it’s a job that would take 15 minutes to do, at most. It should not be something that falls through the cracks; it should be looked into.

It is disrespectful to the student body to think that the campus administration is not concerned enough to provide a clean place for students to sit at outside of the classrooms.
