Question: The only place that students can eat a snack is in the break room in the basement. Is there ANY possible way the rules could be changed to allow eating on all floors? All I’m asking is to have a snack, but if it’s a full meal, then they would have to go to the basement.
Answer: Here’s news: we have changed the rule as of this semester. Take a look at our new food and drink policy on the CUL website at Briefly (but be sure to read the whole policy), we allow most foods in most parts of the library, with the obvious exception of DeGolyer. (Did you notice that the “no food and drink” signs have disappeared?) Of course, we expect all of our patrons to clean up after themselves and to report large spills so we can take care of them. So eat, drink and be responsible.
