Hot or Not

What is HOT and what is NOT at Tech this week.

After months of waiting patiently for that first order of hash browns, the Waffle House on Fifth Street has finally opened. This late-night dining option within the safety of the GTPD patrol area showed up just in time for late summer nights, pool parties, Flicks on Fifth and bathing suits. So remember, indulge your waffle and hash browns fix in moderation.

With baseball’s disappointing end-of-season loss, spring sports have drawn to a close. While baseball in itself had an enjoyable season, the looming summer without sports to watch will make summer classes that much harder for the students stuck on campus and further builds the anticipation for the beginning of the fall season and the return of sports like football.

Colleen Riggle was recently named the new Director of Women’s Resources. This crucial position on campus, charged with caring for and serving the most talked-about minority on campus (the ratio ring a bell to anyone?) will be re-invigorated under her leadership with expanded programming and we congratulate her on the promotion.

No injury on campus is good, but injuries involving serious burns all over multiple students are particularly horrific. Not to mention the fact that the fire was not a real fire, but an out-of-control chemical reaction. Hopefully the two students involved will make a speedy recovery and an incident like this won’t happen again.
