I love how the neighbors keep harping on the “increase enrollment by 3,400″ nonsense, and how this is unconscionable and will destroy their quality of life. First, those increases are from graduate students and “non-traditional” undergrads. Guess how many traditional undergrads GU is adding over the next ten years…zero.

I don’t know if GU neighbors have ever met any grad students, but the ones I know work full time and study at night and on weekends and have no time to disrupt your quality of life. The 170 “non-traditional” undergrads are explicitly defined in the campus plan as being commuters from Maryland/Virginia, over 25, or veterans – so I dont see the connection there either.

Its absurd that the neighbors get away with blaming students for everything that is wrong with their neighborhood. Now the students are responsible for rats, give me a break. Maybe if more neighbors would actually read the campus plan they would see how their leadership is misusing the facts to suit their own purposes.
