That should be in the Worst Idea Georgetown’s Ever Had: Crimes Against Humanity category.

Seriously.

-Allowing James J. O’Donnell to, without sanction, wear ties that appear to be cut from canvasses stolen from children’s photography shops, e.g. “In Santa’s Sleigh”, “home, hearth, and cornucopia” motifs, “Easter bunny with assorted pastel-colored eggs”, “deer-and-running-stream” scenes, medieval tapestries, “highlights of Roman Antiquity”, and “Baby playing with/in/around an oversized, carpeted box.”

ESPECIALLY Georgetown taking away student club space. Any self-respecting university can recognize what a horrible mistake that is. HINT: Students having a good time at college = alumni willing to donate money.

Access to Benefits system: A close second to McCoy, stifling student groups, making them have everything “approved” by a group of know-nothing “advisory” boards, plus unhelpful and downright mean administrators like McCoy, instead of giving them a presumption of compliance with University Policy and punishing them when they are in violation.

-Leavey Center: A “student center” with almost no space for students, designed like a maze, and (if I remember correctly) still not paid-for!

-SAC taking away student offices in Leavey.

Lets just hope that the people at the top read this thread!
