The college announced that a computer store would open in the College Center for a one-year trial. The store filled the space left by the closing of a student-run record store, and would sell Appel’s MachIntosh line, as well as the AT&T PC 60-300. However, there was some controversy over the use of the space for a commercial venture rather than for another student organization. VSA President Richard Feldman ’87 told The Miscellany News, “The computer store is a fanstastic idea, and we do need it, but I’m not happy about the way it was handled. …students were never officially canvassed.”
