Shredding boxes woefully unsecure

Letters to the Editor | Tuesday, April 8, 2008

OIT: Please remove or replace your sensitive document shredding boxes from the residents halls. The current version of these boxes has an inexpensive lock that can be picked open with little training. An unscrupulous student can very easily open these boxes and have access to supposedly secure private data.

While I commend your dedication to student privacy concerns, your current attempt was woefully inadequate.
