Hungry Hours will debute every Monday and Friday at 12:40pm this semester with a schedual that includes: long lunch-line waits, crowded dining halls, more students getting up at the crack of dawn, and more students going home later in the evening.
Dr. Lala Phinkal, interim dean of arts and sciences, said a major goal is to enhance the college's sense of community (you can talk to the others in the line) at a time of maximum inconvenience. "A lot of these long lines are traditionally things we really want our students to attend, but they may be unable because of scheduling conflicts," said Woowiie, a member of the College Hour Committee. "And having the events in the middle of the day helps commuter students, who can now laugh and point at all the residents waiting to eat."
The series began Jan 26 with "101 things to think about when hungry" at the many college dining halls, which will feature no entertainment, open salivating, standing, and if you are patient, food.
Now I know this will benefit people, and it is yet to see how many people. However all changes have their reprecussions; and this presents one of them. Maybe I am jumping the gun and should wait till after Wednesday to pick on it as I have. But its hard to wait for the pros when the cons are staring you right in the face.
Gah, the lines are so long I'm just buying my own sandwich stuff. Sucks though, cause I paid for my meal plan which I can't use thanks to the sudden jolt of eight million students all eating at the same time.

I kinda did, but it requires getting out of the class before lunch as quick as possible and going to the nearest dining hall, bringing everything with ya, both times I did this I got in before the long lines developed. However, I just fear that its only a matter of time before people catch onto that.
