Posted by admin

The votes are in and the results have been ratified by the Elections Committee. Josh Marando won the 2019 MSU presidential election and is president-elect of the McMaster Students Union. The President takes office on May 1, 2019 but will begin the transition process in the coming weeks. Voter turnout for the 2019 MSU Presidential election was 26.8% with 6576 students voting this year.

The future of on-campus robotic snack delivery is here

Posted by Chad

Today, PepsiCo announced that it will be rolling out a fleet of snack-carrying robots on the University of the Pacific’s campus in California!

The robots — or “snackbots” — carry snacks and beverages including choices like popcorn, Lays, Pure Leaf Tea, and Starbucks Cold Brew drinks. Students can place their orders on the iOS app and have them delivered to select locations around campus between 9AM and 5PM.

If these were to come to McMaster, would you order snacks from them? Or is this pushing laziness too far?
