Sanitize before fingering your keys

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

To the Editor:
Since it’s nearly impossible to know who the right person is to direct this comment (someone at ITS? Physical Plant?), we make the following blanket proposal via The Gazette: please install hand sanitizers on the walls outside campus computer labs. How often do those keyboards really get cleaned?

Theoretically, we could bring our own hand sanitizer, but the Principle of Least Effort applies, such that a larger group of people would use and enjoy such a convenience if it was provided. Whoever is in charge of this, we understand hand sanitizers may not have been on your radar, but now that they are, we hope you give them due consideration for a healthier student community.
