    Letters to the Editor — Trash talk

    Editor — I am writing to you as a student of Laney College. I would like to bring your attention to the amount of trash and graffiti on Laney Campus. 
    As a student pursuing my educational goals I look forward to class but am discouraged by the amount of garbage littering our campus. Every time I enter a woman’s restroom it is a mess, toilet paper and paper towels on the floor as well as graffiti written in every stall. 
    Also as a former student of Merritt College I have to say that the facilities at Laney College are somewhat disappointing. I do understand that It is also the students responsibility to clean up after themselves; clearly they don’t take this responsibility very seriously. 
    I’m wondering if there is something we can do about it together. Perhaps a student cleaning committee ? Or more routine trash pick up during the week? Maybe a littering fine? It would be unfortunate to take it to such extremes but sometimes it is necessary.

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
