Bring back the MechEng Cafe!
A few weeks ago, our MechSoc welfare launch raised a number of issues- and this is one of them! Those of you in third and fourth year of MechEng will remember the MechEng Cafe on the seventh floor and the benefits we all got out of it. The Cafe was a convenient place to meet up and buy food at lunchtimes or between lectures and provided a relaxed atmosphere. Think smooth radio playing, friends chatting and sofas. With the department building renovations, the BOSS became the MechEng cafe's replacement. However, as many have expressed the BOSS is far too small too cater for the over 600 undergraduate students and tries to provide a place for both work and lunch with little success. After bringing this up with highly placed members of staff in the department, we were advised that with evidence (i.e this petition), a new MechEng Cafe could be integrated into the building plans. If you agree with this, regardless of which year you are in, sign below!
