    Word on the Quad: How has the closing of the Student Center affected you if at all?

    BY Lucky Thomas / Tower staff writer

    Sinh Psam

    I cannot go to the student center. I don’t have a place to eat breakfast and lunch. Also, I don’t have place to study, do my homework, and to meet my friends.

    Marlon Orantes

    The Student Center closing hasn’t affected my studies not so much, but I do work in the bookstore so that has thrown a wrench in all of our plans. We have way less work hours and plus we have to deal with the graduation cap and gowns.

    Shekinah Keys

    The shutdown has been an inconvenience because this is where I like to study and get good food.

    Treshon Hill-Williams

    I think the Student Service Center has greatly affected most of us students, especially the disability students who hang out on the same floor as me during lunch.

    Yong Kang

    Usually I go to the Student Center for my lunch. Both of the water machines and microwaves have been broken and now the center has been closed. Now, I have to go farther to get my food and water.
