Hamilton Student started this petition to Hamilton College Administration

For those that don't know – Café Opus is closing. For many in the Hamilton community, past and present, Opus has been a welcoming oasis for students and faculty alike. Unfortunately, after many years serving us, Opus will cease to exist as we know it. The Hamilton administration, with no plan to communicate their intentions with the student body, has chosen to replace Opus with another entity; however, they have done so with no input from the student body or consideration for student needs or wants. 

This situation is emblematic of a tradition of non-transparency and non-cooperation. Yet again, the Hamilton College administration chose to make a decision that they are not independently capable of making. The administration must ask for and respect student input – we should not be left to demand it on our own. While this situation may seem superficial to some, Opus has meant so much to so many. Students and faculty alike have been able to share the space, socialize, and study. Opus has given student employees financial stability, a respite from academic stress, and a family. Hamilton's choice to take this away from us without our involvement or knowledge should not go unrecognized. We – the students, faculty, and alumni of Hamilton College – should finally have an opportunity to speak our minds, our truths, and to demand what we deserve.

Please sign this petition if you, too, feel passionately that Hamilton must postpone their decision to replace Opus until adequate student and non-administrative faculty input has been evaluated
