    Well, to be honest, I’m just glad Bon Appetit makes laxative-free food, unlike our previous providers. :oEvery time you feel like it’s not good enough, just say to yourself…”hey, at least it’s not prison food”in fact, maybe that should be the new slogan! LOL

    john, asymmetry can be wonderful, especially if its well planned. i just think that the compact spot sandwiched by the 92 theater and the chapel should have elements that complement those two buildings. the gray elevator shaft detracts from the chapel.joe siry, john paoletti, and elizabeth milroy are great at teaching people to look at art/architecture.

    anon 3:59, at the risk of appearing needlessly patronizing, I must tell you that was the most astute piece of architectural criticism by a Wesleyan student I have heard in, um, quite some time.After thinking it over, I would agree with you, but for the fact that I’m perhaps a little less put off by the possibilities of asymmetry than you. Nevertheless, I can appreciate your view on the subject.

    Bleakness breakdown:-The old campus center wasn’t enough to accommodate the student body very well. There were long lines and there wasnt really a whole lot of space. So when the university announced that it was making a new campus center, I didn’t think it was thaaaat bad of an idea.-We poured millions and millions of dollars into a building that didnt solve any of the problems that Davenport had (I guess the mail system is less hectic). There are fewer options for food, it’s big without actually having that much to it, and it’s sort of a drag, aesthetically. You could easily argue that it’s worse than Davenport. And even if you don’t agree that it’s necessarily worse than Davenport, I think it would be pretty hard to argue that the change is worth millions and millions of dollars.-And that’s why I’m really upset.

    johnwesley, the problem with the the elevator shaft made of brownstone or any heavy material is that it is a third element that is approximately the same size as the two vestibules around the apse at the rear of the chapel—the three together look unbalanced. An elevator shaft of glass would help it recede into the background, restoring the balance of the two vestibules flanking the apse.

    wait, you don’t think if someone were willing to come up with the bucks, it should be made of BROWNSTONE?

    some rich alumnus/alumnae should pay for the elevator shaft of the Zelnick Pavilion to be made of glass like the rest of the structure. that should make it at least a little more pleasing to the eye.

    At this point, I’ve stopped expecting wesleyan to do things well…i expect poor planning and disregard for sense. If i could quit the meal plan and cook (if i had a kitchen) I wouldn’t even have to rely on this mess, and I would eat twice as good for half as much!just more of the same, cynical as it may be.

    By the way…Summerfields keeps running out of to-go boxes. Someone should do something about that because it’s frustrating for the workers and students alike. Probably more-so for the workers.And I miss the ice cream.

    I think we’re intelligent enough to conclude on our own that this poll is highly unscientific. Yet I believe it still proves a point. And you can’t ignore the comments.

    One of the biggest problems with this (or any similar) poll is that because it determines whether or not you’ve voted already by your IP address (at least I’m pretty sure it does) and Clean Access Agent refreshes your IP each time you log on to it, it was completely possible to vote once for every Clean Access session you logged in to.

    WHERE THE FUCK IS…1) The two girls to make paninis with2) The Sandwich bar (mocon)3) the fresh bread4) the big salad bar5) the burrito bar6) the OTHER sandwhich bar (campus centre)7) the good tomato sauce…the food is fucking disgusting. and usdan is an ugly big building that tries to look like the older buldings on campus by using the nice brickwork above the windows that look like rays of light. SADLY THIS SCHOOL HIRES RETARDS FOR ARCHITECTS! Look at Fauver… It’s modeled after an old age home or something. And that thing in between 92 theatre and the chapel, is just horrendous.

    This is highly unscientific. I think you should make it clear that this poll was done in such a manner. While it may seem like a statstically significant response, but there are many confouding variables that prevent you from making the conclusion found in the headline of this article. As a member of the scientific and mathematic community here at Wesleyan, I suggest you make the header more appropriate.
