South Quad Arby’s

Letter to the Editor | Monday, March 30, 2009

While walking back to my dorm from class the other day, I noticed something peculiar: somebody had etched an Arby’s logo out of chalk in the middle of south quad. I did not think much of it at first, but then I got an amazing idea. We should build an Arby’s on campus! Not just anywhere, but right in the middle of south quad. To some this may sound like a bad idea, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that building an Arby’s on south quad is a good thing to do. First and foremost, Arby’s has delicious roast beef sandwiches, and students will have another food choice to compliment Subway, Sbarro and Burger King. Secondly, south quad will no longer be a wind tunnel. Instead of hitting people, the wind will hit Arby’s, making students more warm and content. Finally, I believe that an Arby’s on South Quad would be aesthetically pleasing. I’m tired of South Quad being a wide empty space, and Arby’s will fill that void. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of room to play football or ultimate.
