Rapson bike pasture benefits all

Recently in the Minnesota Daily, I read that the Minnesota Student Association is investing $15,000 in a bike pasture outside of Rapson Hall. IâÄôm all for this improvement.

Not only will it provide much-needed space for bikes, but it will also be eco-friendly and offer a place for students to socialize.  

As a student who spends a lot of time in Rapson Hall, I can tell you that this structure will not only benefit cyclists but also those who enjoy an aesthetically pleasing campus.

As IâÄôm sure most students realize, this is one area of East Bank that seems to have been overlooked in recent years. ItâÄôs great that our undergraduate student government has finally decided to invest in it.

Kudos to our student government for doing its job, to President Lizzy Shay for lobbying for the money, to President Eric Kaler for granting the request and to the Minnesota Daily for spreading the word. HereâÄôs one giant pat on the back for a promise kept.
