Bullet Hole backlash

The current Bullet Hole setup (Taylor Visvis/GNN)

Dear Gettysburg College,

When Servo is packed to the brim with the entire student body trying to secure Baby Ray’s buffalo wings and pork wontons, I sometimes wonder if I should venture to the Bullet Hole.

So what’s my preceding thought? Not a chance. If you are a student on campus, you probably already know exactly why, but for the administration, I’ll break it down into simple terms. We want options that don’t include only one type of sub roll, and we want a grill that actually cooks fresh food.

Even if you want new Bullet’s mediocre food selection, you’re still going to have to wait for it because the lines are atrocious. Between the hours of 12 pm and 1 pm, and 5:30pm-6:30pm, you better practice your patience, and hope you can make it to class on time.

You would think that the new Bullet Hole, although temporary, would improve efficiency, right? Nope. The new Bullet Hole features one elongated counter starting with the special and hot meal, followed by salads, sandwiches and pizza. When more than 12-15 students are in line for different items, there is no distinction between lines  — and this is a huge problem.

Most students will end up grazing around until they can distinguish between sections. If no one speaks up to indicate their order, Bullet Hole turns into a free for all.

Now, I know that this is only temporary, but I’m aggravated that the school spends millions of dollars on architects and planners for construction, yet no one had second thoughts about the structure of the Bullet Hole. On behalf of the impatient student body, we ask only for feasible changes, but when Bullet Hole takes longer to order than servo, it may be a sign for some much needed adjustments.
