LTE: micowave shortage



Students have noticed that the shortage of microwaves in Maucker Union has led to long lines around lunch time.


Editor’s note: the author of the following letter to the editor requested that their identity remain anonymous.

The Maucker Union normally has two microwaves in use, but one broke a couple weeks ago, and they have not replaced it. Now, there is a line of 10+ people for the only microwave from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

That is not fair and is a waste of time. Maucker Union needs to replace its microwave and get a third one to use!

There is a shortage of microwaves on this campus, which is a major problem for off-campus students and students without dining plans who just want to cook their meals without waiting in line for 15 minutes.

In addition, Rod Library does not have a microwave at all! There is no alternative to the microwave in the Union.

Rod needs to get a microwave by Book Bistro because this is a major inconvenience. More microwaves are not a lot to ask. UNI, please have enough microwaves so students, faculty and staff can cook their meals in a timely fashion.
