Plea for responsibility...

We really hate to bring this up twice in one week...but people keep leaving the door to 319 open, and it's really not acceptable.

Please, please, please (x infinity).....


We don't feel the need to repeat the reasons why; it really is common sense. We're all adults and can handle this small responsibility. Write yourself a post it note or brand it on your forehead if necessary.

Respect other people and the fact that 319 is a shared space.
