Emma G started this petition to UNC Board of Trustees

Because no one else nutritious and affordable is there for you at 3AM.

 

The Sanchez family has provided a place of love, memories, and fine cuisine for 20+ years to UNC students and their friends and families. Cosmic is a staple POI on Franklin and we urge the board of trustees to reconsider forcing cosmic to close or move out due to a selfish renovation of unnecessary "visitor spaces" (aka any shop on Franklin can serve as so) and "retail space". Franklin street is a difficult place to maintain a business at, and we see local shops turnover at rates shorter than it takes to earn a standard undergrad degree. Cosmic, on the other hand, has been successfully in business for decades, which means that it holds meaning and irreplaceable sentimental value to the UNC body. Why not tear down Davie Poplar, or the campus-threatening space of the Silent Sam (which brings armed shooters to campus btw) for a visitor's center? It's basically the same amount of space as Cosmic and right in the middle of everything.

If the "UNC" Board of "Trust"ees really cares to represent the student body which makes it exist and have "power" in the first place, then it would do more listening about the real, human truth of this situation, rather than just the prestige and economics.

Destroying Cosmic would not only displace UNC students from coming out to Franklin and supporting the local businesses, but it would main and displace a loved and highly respected family which has always welcomed UNC with open arms.
