Letters to the Editors - July 2013

Dear Editors, I’ve noticed that in almost every issue you have letters from people commenting on the quality of the food at ‘Grind & Squeeze’. Most, if not all, are about how bad and expensive the food is, and I’d like to disagree… partially. Over the last few months there has been a marked improvement in the quality and variety of the food. The hot food has gotten more interesting, and it’s different stuff every day. The sandwiches are more varied as well. You can even get Nachos! And it’s not bad! I’ve managed to get something different every time I go in and be pretty happy with it. Though, I do agree with the detractors on one note. It’s too damned expensive! I’m pretty sure the café is owned/run by the university, it’s not like they’re a restaurant. They serve students pretty exclusively, so how are the retail prices justified?? To everyone complaining about the food, calm down, it’s not that bad. But yes, it is expensive. They would probably make more money if they made things cheaper because more people would eat there.

Regards, Anna

Dear Editors,

You guys have great artwork on/in your issues, have you thought of possibly including them as posters across the middle pages? I know this would mean sacrificing space for other stuff but it would be such a cool thing to offer! Here’s hoping! Tom

Dear Editors,

I’ve heard a rumour going around that University ‘powers that be’ are thinking of changing the names of Departments and Schools to ‘Colleges’ (i.e. the School of Law would become something like ‘the Law College’ or ‘College of Law’), while the actual residential colleges would become ‘Houses’ (i.e. ‘Robb House’, ‘St. Alberts House’). This is an outrageous idea! How dare they try to diminish such a vital part of the College history and culture. Why even do this? It serves no purpose as far as I can see, apart from being confusing and offensive. I hope other College students are as offended by this idea as I am and will lend their voice to preventing it from happening.

Yours angrily, Anonymous

Dear Nucleus,

What’s wrong with the GNSAD?

Dear Editors,

With all of the corruption investigations set to take place involving the university, maybe it’s about time someone looked into what’s going on with the guy on the Gold Coast being paid to ‘run’ TuneFM, though to my knowledge he’s never even set foot in the place. Services have never justified his position, and it just seems awfully suspicious. That money could be used to improve the radio station and providing more opportunities for student involvement, instead of lining invisible pockets in another state.
