Ideas for locker woes

Sometime ago, I read about the locker situation at NU. At that time, it seemed there was enough public hue and cry to affect meaningful change. Here we are two years later and the locker situation has become a $100,000 problem. Now I read about parents and students who show up at NU the night before lockers are available, are pelted with water balloons, and have to dodge gangs of seniors roaming the halls armed with bolt cutters to make sure their friends have lockers. This is the 21st Century, folks. Can’t we develop a less Medieval type of locker assignment? How about a lottery system? A certain number of lockers for Freshman, Sophomores, etc. Or just buy more lockers.

Is this locker thing merely the tip of the iceberg as to the overall situation at NU? Do students arrive at 6 a.m. to claim a desk for their first period English class? Do they stand in lines to use the toilets? Do they run to their next class in order to sit in a desk? Do they eat in shifts because there aren’t enough chairs in the cafeteria?

I hope my humble contribution will help solve this mess.
