146 sick students, Facilities refuses to help with vomit
Update: Housing changed its mind. Scroll down on this post for the information you need for cleaning.
There are now 146 food-poisoned students who went to Georgetown Hospital, according to today’s email from Todd Olson. Despite this high number, the University has apparently instituted a you-puke-it, you-clean-it policy for affected students.
Kathrin Verestoun’s roommate vomited on their carpet after eating at Leo’s, and Verestoun sent a request to Facilities asking them to clean the vomit under her roommate’s bed. She got this email back from Facilities (caps lock theirs):

It’s outrageous enough that the University is deducting from your meal plan for the privilege of dining in their laughable Leo’s replacement, Leavey’s Center Grill, which offers a only smattering of fried goodies and a dismal, withered salad bar. But making students cleanup the University’s mess, too? That ain’t right.
