After watching the seniors of their college struggle to find a job, the underclassmen of the Liberal Arts Department are feeling the onset of panic. Sensing the need to change majors while their degree plans will still let them, a migration westward has begun. Due to the overcrowding of valued majors on main campus, these students have moved to the less populated West Campus, in hopes of bettering their chances to find a job after graduation.
Sophomore George Donner is one of the students hoping to settle into a new major on West Campus. “I’ve heard stories of people striking gold in Mays Business School. If that doesn’t pan out for me, there are plenty of open plots in the College of Agriculture to settle in,” said Donner, who hopes to learn a marketable skill from his degree so that he can feel confident when attending career fairs.
Current students in the College of Agriculture are against this expansion, with many claiming that tthe once spacious halls of the AGLS building have become filled with former liberal arts students reading books that allegedly are not textbooks. Most upsetting of all to the natives is the foreigners’ lack of respect for the earth in which their crops are grown. This is most evident with the littering of event and organization fliers brought by those traveling on Route 6 out west.
Bubba Lee, a senior Rangeland Management major, had a lot to say on the matter. “They come here treating us like savages and forcing their main-campus views on us. They treat me like I have never been in school before, but I was in the top 10% of my school and president of my FFA Chapter,” said Lee . “The only good that has come from their arrival is through trading with them. A guy in Capri jeans and thick frame glasses offered me tobacco in exchange for course notes.”
Due to the sudden increase of students on West Campus, the transportation department is planning to add a new Transcampus Spirit route to connect the campus from east to west. In the meantime, it has been reported that the LAAH building is now quieter and less crowded than the top floor of Evans library, and is currently trending as “the new 6th floor.”
