Bring Back Reactor!
By signing this petition, I agree that Reactor Field should be available for students to use on football game days. We the undersigned do respectfully oppose the closing of Reactor Field for student use during the football season beginning in the 2009-2010 academic year. We cite the lack of a presentation of an acceptable alternative for student use that is safe and cost-effective. We have concerns that this closing will not eliminate the fan behavior issues, but rather threatens to both exacerbate them and displace student football fans yet again in a way reminiscent of the closing of "Frat Pit" on the corner of Providence Rd. and Champions Dr. in Fall 2007. We object to this conclusion being reached without representation from our elected student government taking part in the research, planning, or decision-making stages and further object to the safety concerns we believe this closing will cause. We respectfully request that action be taken on this issue to establish space where students may spend football game days in lieu of Reactor Field, should the administration decide that Reactor Field not be restored to student access.
