Andrew Bennett '09, the student representative on the trustee committee working on the Juliet project and a member of the Bookstore of the Future group, confirms to Mads that no contract with Barnes and Noble has yet been signed.
"Early in the fall semester the matter will go to the students and faculty for further input," Andrew tells Mads. "There is, for instance, a design issue that students and faculty will be asked to comment on."
We are also told that "the College has been working with the Three Arts and the Juliet Cafe at several points along the way."
Students and faculty are encouraged to continue to voice their opinions about the issue, and more open meetings like the one held last April are being planned for the Fall.
