Josh Davis (’16) said, “I think if we brought it to congress it could be considered a form of torture or brutality to the citizens of our school…I think opening up parking spaces on the walk up, closer to North Hall, would be resourceful.”
“I think it’s terrible and definitely should change because the difference between the senior lot and the junior lot is extremely large,” said Edward Landow (‘16). “If we don’t have the privilege of using the senior lot next year, then there’s going to be some serious issues at Bullis”.
Although many students resent the issue, some students don’t mind it. “I don’t like it but I think it’s good”, said Griff Gosnell (’16), “like a right of passage for all the juniors and some sophomores that get their cars and have to walk first and then finally when they’re seniors they get the senior lot as…like a reward for all of their years in high school.”
Not only do students believe that it is too cold for the walk, some also say that it is too time consuming.
Kyle Greenberg (’16) said, “For me it’s more of a sprint, how I stay in shape. It takes me a good 6 or 7 minutes at a full run and it’s pretty cold but…it’s for the best. I’m pretty slow so if I can up my mile time from 13 to 12 minutes, I’ll get up there a lot faster.”
Some students believe that there are alternatives to walking in the winter. One is the possibility of a security shuttle that could make multiple runs from the gym to North Hall – and vice versa.
Regarding this issue, the security team made no comment.
