Hot or Not

What is hot and what is not on the Tech campus.

Hot:Donuts Arrive

Last Wednesday the new Dunkin’ Donuts officially opened to students in the student center. The sugar content and caffeine levels on campus just spiked drastically. Not only does this come right in time for midterms, but the addition of more places to grab coffee before class makes every student’s life just a little bit easier.

Not: Flags flooded out

After days of rain and floods, students were looking forward to a sunny day at SIX Flags relaxing in the newly pleasant weather. The floods continue to plague us, however, as the park is still too flooded to allow the rides to be opened to Tech students. While tickets will be refunded, the yearly tradition of Six Flags fun is canceled.

Hot:Van Leer funded

Anyone who has spent any time in the Van Leer building can attest that it is beyond the point of needing some renovations. The Harris Corporation has pledged $2 million dollars to the ECE department over the next four years in order to do repairs and renovations to the building. While no Tech student enjoys hearing that there will be more construction on campus, this needs it.

Not: Canada canceled

Tech men’s basketball was scheduled to do three exhibition games in Canada before the season. This would have been the basketball team’s first international trip in 18 years, but for unspecified reasons, the trip was unexpectedly canceled. The trip would have been good exposure for Tech, and the unexpected cancellation reflects poorly on the institute. Canada’s missing out.
