Information booth at the front gate being taken over by DPS
Starting this year, the booth at the front gate will no longer be serving as an information station. Instead, it’s being used by the Department of Public Safety.
According to a student who worked in the information booth, the gatehouse’s approximately seven student staffers recently received an email informing them that they’re now unemployed. They were also encouraged to apply for other positions with the Office of Communication.
In an email, Georgetown’s Director of Media Relations Andy Pino assures us that although DPS will using booth, clueless campus visitors won’t be left to their own devices:
The Sough Gatehouse has been transitioned to the Department of Public Safety to assist in their on campus community policing efforts. Visitors to campus will still be able to request campus maps and information at the gatehouse.
No word on what impact his will have on the DPS car permanently stationed outside the front gates…
