Student Affairs Introduces Electronic Chargers

Penn State, you spoil me. Thanks to UPUA, I can now pick up phone chargers at the Library. Last night in the HUB, I was startled when I saw the latest innovation to reach our campus. Student Affairs has installed four charger boxes on the first floor of the HUB. Each box contains eight chargers cables that can power cell phones and iPods.

I’m surprised at how low key Union and Student Activities has kept its newest project. There was not one mention of it on their Twitter page. When I inquired about these chargers to the two attendants at the HUB Desk, I ended up breaking the news to one of the clerks. The other attendant said that she first saw these on Monday.

I think that this is a good move for the students. When my phone is dead and I can’t check Gmail or Twitter, I feel so isolated. My phone is practically attached to my body, and I can’t remember how I lived before smart phones. As long as students don’t have confrontations with these devices, I hope Penn State sets up these charger boxes in other areas of the HUB and campus.
