I have just received an email from The Den on behalf of Dan Guerrero. It explains that USAC will be re-discussing and voting on the student seating arrangement in the coming weeks. Here is part of it (emphasis mine):
Last month, after extensive deliberation with student leadership, Athletics announced new plans for the student seating in renovated Pauley Pavilion. This week, the Undergraduate Student Association Council (USAC) decided to further explore the overall student body reaction to the seating adjustment by placing a question on the upcoming election ballot. I fully support USAC's engagement in this process and look forward to working with them as we examine the results of the question. If ultimately, a return to the previously established student section is the desire, then that is what we will do.
Although it is certainly a late response, Bruins Nation played an influential role in this and we'll have to see how the USAC decision pans out. The focus now should be to contact USAC leaders and voice your opinion on it - since they'll be the ones voting.
