Campus lockdown Saturday morning

[email protected]

Dear Editor: I’m writing to you because I have beef with WKU. I woke up Saturday morning at 8:30 so I could leave to go home. Little did I know, I wasn’t getting very far. As I tried to pull out of Grise parking lot, all I saw was yellow gates. A volunteer quickly approached my car, and said that campus is shut down for the marathon. No one is allowed in or out until 10:30ish(meaning I’m stuck until the last fat man crosses the finish line.) He said that supposedly there had been flyers sent out to warn us. I check my mail and email everyday, and stay up to date with the flyers around my dorm. I have seen NOTHING about the campus roadways being shut down. I am sure I am not the only one with this complaint. I LIVE on campus, therefore my “rent” should entitle me to know when something affects me or not. I refuse to stand by and be taken advantage of because Western thinks they have some sort of upper hand over me. And Western wonders why students move off campus as soon as they can. It is simple–because students want to live somewhere where they have rights and a clue what is going on.
