Networks Sandwich Selection Nixes EC

I am shocked and amazed at Networks' prejudiced sandwich selection. For a few months now, it has been possible to buy a sandwich at Networks named after MIT dormitories. I am concerned and disappointed that there is no East Campus sandwich when there is a McCormick, a Senior House, a MacGregor and even an Ashdown. I suppose the tasteless, back-to-nature, alfalfa-filled Mother Earth sandwich is supposed to satisfy us alternative-lifestyle East Campus residents.

East Campus is the largest dormitory on campus and the second oldest. We have one of the most active, congenial, and wealthy governments. EC has been home to many future MIT professors, famous and successful alumni, and at least one lovable dean.

We also have large, spacious kitchens which encourage cooking and eating within the dorm. It is almost intuitive that eating is associated with this hungry dorm.

As a current resident and recent president of East Campus, I urge Aramark to offer an East Campus sandwich at Networks. And please, hold the mayo.
