Napkin responses in commons

Napkin responses in commons

I urge you and the people who respond to napkins to be very cautious about how sassy they are. There is no way to identify who writes a napkin in commons and what their background is. The napkin responses assume that someone is being lazy when they ask for something, but it is very possible that they are asking for something from an accessibility point of view.

Thank you for your comment. The physical napkin board has traditionally been a spot where students expect a little humor but there is no intent to be disrespectful of anyone. Additionally, while some options may not be feasible to enact broadly, there are always additional options for individuals with accessibility requests. Please reach out to me directly at clacey@bates.edu if you have a particular need that is not being met.
