Last week, Vox reported on a few of the finer points of the campus plan agreement, from what future student housing will look like to what the plan might mean for graduate students. At the same time, CHARMS began for incoming freshmen, which started off this summer’s line of prefrosh previews. The week ended with the ANC rubber stamping the campus plan agreement, clearing the way for the proposal to go into effect.
Beltway Greg feels that Georgetown is doing the right thing to rein in our excessive reveling.
The plan is long overdue. Georgetown is not sleep away camp in Maine where you can earn a badge in boozing and property destruction. Undergrads have become increasingly immature so this is the solution. Next.
While that may be true, it doesn’t have to be. Coming soon: The College offers two new minors teaching students how to get their drink on and how to destroy public property.
d00$h has a different idea about how the University could have fought back against the neighbors.
The real issue isn’t that the students are having their rights infringed. It’s that the school is too weak to stand up to a bunch of over entitled neighbors. We need a stronger administration who isn’t afraid of turning the entire city against us as we gradually expand to encompass the entire NW quadrant and Rosslyn. But it’s not really their fault. We also need enough money so that we can bribe or intimidate anyone who tries to stand in our way. And possibly to mobilize the ROTC and just invade. But, since this is Georgetown and we have no money, maybe we could just hire some convicted felons and put them in the “faculty/staff” housing and let them loot West Georgetown. The neighbors will come begging to have the students back.
