To the editor:
This past fall, maintenance and minor renovation projects were performed on parts of Willard Straight Hall, but especially in regards to the dining facilities within the building. Unfortunately, one of the rather unpleasant side effects is the large, stainless steel vent that is currently in front of Willard Straight Hall, to the left of the main entrance that now blows exhaust, steam, and other pungent odors right in front of the building. It’s a shame that such a beautiful building on campus now has both this ugly vent and the unpleasant smells that come with it, which leave such a bad impression on both students and visitors that pass through Ho Plaza or utilize the building. Hopefully, something can be done to either relocate the fan to the rear or side of the building or eliminate it all together.
