Letter: New NIU buses seem unnecessary

To the Editor:

We live in a state that is broke and in a nation in which obesity is a major health problem. So NIU has purchased small vehicles so students won’t have to walk to classes, and they have spent thousands more in widening the sidewalk along Lucinda to accommodate them.

Another few thousand in taxpayer dollars was spent moving the bus stop from the west side of the Holmes Student Center to the east side. In the meantime, staff and faculty positions have been eliminated to cut expenses.

It seems as if it is much to easy to spend money when it is not your own. This is ridiculous!
