Lighting Already Good

Lighting Already Good

Wow, here is a new low in The Tech: a column by Elaine Y. Wan '01 ["Let There Be Light," April 10] that basically says MIT should improve its lighting by joining the Environmental Protection Agency's Green Lights program. Of course, some of us remember that MIT completed the Green Lights program a few years ago.

The lighting was changed nearly everywhere on campus, including in lecture halls and libraries as Wan suggests. If I recall correctly, one area that was not redone was the fourth floor of the Student Center, because student activities (probably including The Tech) wanted at least one relaxingly dim place on campus.
