Recently Rutger’s University has been in the news because of the tragic suicide of Tyler Clementi after friends broadcast a homosexual affair on a secret webcam. But besides homophobic bullying, the New Jersey school is facing an even bigger problem: overcrowding on campus has made it really hard for kids to eat at the dining halls this year.
You’d think getting a simple cup of coffee wouldn’t be an issue, but according to one student:
“I went to get some coffee at the Midnight Breakfast before finals last year and I couldn’t even get in because there was a line that went all the way outside the dining hall!” she said.
“I stand on line for a good night like stir fry, and by the time I get to the front, 45 minutes has passed,” she said. Rosenzweig further explains that because it takes forever to get food, many students pass up the hot food and head straight for the salad bar and ‘left overs’ from the deli line.
It’s been so long since these students tasted a hot meal they may have forgotten that stir fry from the cafeteria sucks as bad as the deli bar, and that most college students subsist off a diet of Ramen noodles and Adderall anyway.
