As a college student, I survive off of coffee and that is about it. However, it has become more of a challenge to get my caffeine fix on the weekends.
Aramark has changed the hours Starbucks is open during the weekend. While it is open most of Saturday, it is Sundays I have a problem with. It does not open until 5 p.m. and is only open for about six hours until the library closes.
I love going to the Starbucks on campus and doing my homework while I am there, but I am one of those people that cannot function without a cup of coffee to help me focus and get work done.
It is so much effort to drive all the way to the other side of town for the hope of getting a fresh cup of coffee, and it is too expensive to have the necessary supplies to make my own coffee in the comfort of my apartment.
While it makes sense from a financial aspect, my desire is to have more coffee and I will not be denied this simple necessity. Starbucks needs to be open when the library open on Sundays, not just for me, but for everyone that wants a nice cup of coffee while they scramble to finish their homework and projects before the week begins.
I love my coffee. It is a necessary part of every college student’s life.
