Residence Halls at The University of Mississippi allowing Desk Hutches

This petition had 363 supporters

It has been brought to our attention, the incoming freshmen at The University of Mississippi, that desk hutches are no longer allowed inside residence halls. Unfortunately, that puts us at a disadvantage. Having desk hutches not only allows for extra storage space, but as well as a space to complete school work. With these pieces of furniture it allows the student to finish their homework with a brighter light setting to better see their assignments, and a power strip to have a convienent place to keep laptops charged as well as having a accessible location to a printer. The University has done a poor job at spreading the word to all students that these pieces are prohibited. At this point in time, majority of the incoming freshman have already purchased hutches for their dorm room. It is still unclear as to why they decided to change the rules last minute. As a concerned student and incoming member of the freshmen class, I am trying to make a difference by starting a petition to portray how this new implemented rule is unfair due to Crosby Hall having built in hutches while the others do not. This is a more efficient way to have personal space and a way to prevent students from hanging pieces on the wall. This problem could easily be solved by just allowing student to have these custom pieces of furniture in the residence halls.
