Campus Rec policy inflexible

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

To the Editor:
I was in disbelief when Campus Recreation informed me I would NOT be able to purchase a one-month pass to the Cardio Annex and be reimbursed for the week I would miss due to Reading Week. The reimbursement I wanted wouldn’t come in the form of money, but my annex pass would carry over to the first week in March. My question to Campus Recreation is: WHY THE FUCK ISN’T THIS POSSIBLE?

Firstly, I don’t live in London and don’t plan on using the annex during Reading Week. Secondly, even if Campus Recreation thought I was trying to scam them (which I’m not), couldn’t it simply deactivate my student card for the duration of Reading Week? Thirdly, I’ve done this at my local gym and it wasn’t a problem.

When I asked why this wasn’t possible, I was told “We don’t do these types of things.” Wow! What a well-constructed response from Campus Recreation. Johnnie Cochrane would be proud of that argument! Ironically, this week is “Random Acts of Kindness Week.” I guess Campus Recreation didn’t get the Facebook group invite.
