Andrus Fence: The Mislaid Barricade

Recently, the infamous Andrus Field fence came up again to mark the beginning of softball baseball season. It was last spotted during football season, its presence forgotten as easily as crushing Hamilton.

But it is back.

This fence stretches the entire length of the field’s sides, making the bottom of Foss Hill only a right angle away from Olin. This causes multiples issues. The fence is too tall to be jumped without some form of difficulty and it contains no gates to pass through. Students are obligated to walk around the fence to get to Usdan, a considerable detour.

The least the fence overseers could do is put in a gate or some way to get through the fence. And before someone makes a retort about laziness, let me remind you of how kind the weather is being to Middletown. The winds are bone-chilling and the temperature stuck on repeat since December. I’d like to spend the least amount of time outside when I walk from Point A to Point B.

So, if anyone reading this can help, please do.
