Music Coming to Cafeterias
Mary Dixon, Director of the Student Life Committee, announced yesterday that beginning next semester, university cafeterias will broadcast classical music during mealtimes. “Music will foster a more relaxed atmosphere,” said Dixon. “Students’ lives are hectic, and mealtimes provide important opportunities to take a break and catch up with friends before moving on to the next class or assignment.” Added Dixon, “We’re hoping that, if we provide the music, students will unplug their music devices – their walkmans and mp3 players or whatever – and will spend more time talking to each other. When students have their headphones on, they’re not connecting with each other.”
