A lazy river is the perfect addition to any college campus. Texas Tech has one, and LSU is currently building one as part of a major renovation of the school’s recreational facilities. Personally, I’m all for it. It’s another reason to not go to class, and that, my friends, is what college is all about.
Unfortunately, there are some people out there who don’t want us to have nice things. They live for ruining our fun. These fun-suckers aren’t too happy about building the river since LSU is in the midst of the whole bankruptcy thing.
From EAG News:
“The fact that we can build this pool on one budget while the university is sinking on another shows that overall there is a problem with the way universities finance their work,” LSU Faculty Senate President and professor Kevin Cope told 103.5 FM.
Well, Kevin, from what I’ve been told by our resident LSU guy, the money that funded the project was voted on by students back in 2011 for that exact purpose. The students voted to raise their student fees to fund it, and it’s not touching any of the budget. It was earmarked exactly for that, and they can’t change it anyway. So suck it, Kev. This shit is happening whether you like it or not.
The best thing about this whole project? They put this baby right behind a bunch of fraternity houses too. I give it two days before that water is forever unclean..
