Area Coordinator Cory Peterson, who sent an email to rooftop residents last week about the incident, told students on Friday they would not be charged for the graffiti clean-up.
“Thank you to those who emailed and stopped in the office to chat about the graffiti and your knowledge of when it appeared. And thank you to those residents who voluntarily cleaned it up,” he wrote in an email. “As a result of the quick community response, the matter was addressed and no community charges are necessary.”
Oddly enough, Georgetown isn’t the only D.C. school with response-to-vandalism problems.
GW’s Residential Property Management office emailed students in the Ivory Tower dorm last Friday, threatening to levy community charges on all residents for damages to the building. However, the message “was not authorized,” according to a successive email sent Friday night. Now, GW plans to reevaluate its listserv email policies.
