UCenter doors make trouble for students

There is a problem on campus that has gone unnoticed for far too long. The side doors on the commuter cafeteria are locked at sporadic hours which force many students to go through the single entrance by the bank.
Everyone on campus has been the victim of this. You’re walking by, you’re hungry and you decide to get some chow at Nathan’s or at Grains. You see the nicely placed door located near the Galleon Lawn. You go to open the door but you are stopped in your tracks by a door that won’t open. You talk a walk down the sidewalk and you try the next door and you meet the same fate. You have to trek down to the only door that is open. Now, that wouldn’t be so bad if the weather wasn’t a factor.
Sadly, Seton Hall is not located in sunny Hawaii. We’ve got rain and snow and being outside can be terrible. We just wanted to get inside as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, some University employ seems to think that we like being out in the snow or the rain. Perhaps, they get a power trip watching us try to open the door only to be denied by the lock. Whatever it is, it needs to change. We don’t like being in the snow or the rain when we are dying of hunger.
Most residents live on the side of campus furthest away from the door that is always unlocked. That door only benefits the residents of Boland and Aquinas which is fine. Residents of Xavier, Cabrini, Serra and Neumann need to be thought of. That door needs to be always unlocked.
