UCLA: Give Us Our Grass

New, 10 comments

As cities try to regulate rules about fake grass, students at UCLA want access to the real stuff. A Daily Bruin editorial rails against the ropes outside the Royce Hall that bar students from walking on the grass. According to the paper, students have been kicked off for playing Frisbee or lounging in the area. "Nearly every day of the year, the green grass of our main academic quad is treated as private property. This exclusionary act is clearly an attempt to maintain the university’s image, but it is a disgrace to this fine school....UCLA needs to remove these ropes and open these areas for students to enjoy. Instead of being forced to find grass on an uncomfortably steep hill by Janss steps, students should be able to study or relax in the university’s main quad." [Daily Bruin]
