A sedentary complaint

Patrick McHugh | Wednesday, March 24, 2010

As I sit in O’Shaughnessy Hall for class I have to wonder who committed this atrocity. What atrocity you ask?

Well my friends, it is the incredibly small size and comfort level of these desks. I had these same desks in elementary school and last time I checked I am not still 4-foot-8 inches and studying basic arithmetic. This is a top notch university, why am I sitting in an elementary school desk? Some of the desks on campus are great (i.e. the big rooms in DeBartolo, even some in the Pasquerilla Center), but the ones in O’Shag are just bad. I would like to cast a general vote of no confidence for whoever is responsible for this travesty.
