I really enjoyed reading the news article “Post’s New Hangout,” because it was nice to learn more about the new and improved TV room. Being a commuter student I enjoyed spending time in the Commuter’s Lounge with my friends before class started, and was disappointed when it became a lounge geared for gaming. Not having the Commuter’s Lounge made it hard to hold CSA meetings and have a place that was just for commuters to “hang out” since we don’t have dorm rooms to go back too. Being a member of the Commuter Student Association, I hope that more CSA meetings will be held in the new TV room, and that lives up to the standards that the old Commuter Lounge had in the past.

After reading this past week’s paper, my favorite article had to be the news piece, “What’s a Grab N Go?” Being a commuter student and not having the option of eating at the Winnick, I really appreciate it that Hillwood has certain foods such as chicken fingers, burgers, chicken sandwiches and fries already made and stored in labeled containers. It is definitely a great improvement since last semester because students who want food from the grill don’t have to wait on a huge line. I think Post is going a good job trying to improve some of the negatives associated with Common Hour, and making getting lunch quick and easy is a step in the right direction.

My favorite article from this past week’s edition had to definitely be the features piece “Recycling on Campus.” I agree that the campus is making more of a conscience effort to recycle and prevent unnecessary garbage, but I feel that other things should be done. More recyclable bins should absolutely be placed around campus to give students more of an opportunity to recycle, but other things could include having more contests which focus on recycling. I remember last semester when there was a fun competition between clubs to collect the most wrappers, and the winner won prize. Little things like adding more contests, which are geared towards getting dorm students and clubs involved can help make recycling more fun.
