Linsey: Let Us In!

This petition had 120 supporters

We the dance community of Brandeis, and allies therein, want to open a discussion about getting card access to the Linsey section of the gym. Arts communities, and dance communities in particular, often have to fight for respect amidst more traditional extracurricular activities like sports. As it stands, dancers have to walk across the basketball courts to access the Linsey studios. This means walking through active basketball, soccer and volleyball games and tournaments, which disrupts play and is dangerous for both the players and the dancers. Dancers also often have to walk behind soccer nets during active games, which is a severe hazard. It would be better for all involved if dancers could enter at Linsey, which is the entrance beside the fitness multipurpose rooms that at least 15 Brandeis dance clubs use. We are aware that some students have card access to this area, and that there is often a student worker stationed at that entrance. These factors show that using this entrance is feasible and that card access is a possibility for the future. We understand that Gosman wants to limit the number of people with swipe access to the gym. With that in mind, we propose that Gosman grant access to a certain number of people per club (the way the Romper Room is set up), or to club leaders/choreographers only.
