La Salle adjusts budget to buy more adirondack chairs after burning them to keep warm during the two weeks without power

The years of 2020 and 2021 have not been well for the Christian University, for we have had to sell Founders Hall, replace the Starbucks with a Long John Silvers and now replace the beloved adirondack chairs. As punishment from the city of Philadelphia for breaking Lent and eating meat on Fridays, the city shut off the power to the University for two weeks. During these two weeks there was a cold stretch where La Salle had to burn wood to create warmth for those living on campus. 

Luckily, the University didn’t burn anything important, but the beloved adirondack chairs that were bought in surplus several years earlier were sacrificed to keep warm. While most students are bothered by the lack of adirondack chairs, La Salle has taken it upon themselves to order more — a lot more. Supposedly, there are over one thousand chairs being ordered, over five hundred of them to be placed in the Belfield ave field for business classes to take place after their building was sold to pay for the graduation at the Lincoln Financial Field. Once students return to campus in the Fall 2021 semester, they’ll be faced with less buildings and more adirondacks.
