The Daily Orange,
SU’s student newspaper, reported yesterday that the U. is scrambling to lodge
this fall’s freshman cohort of 3,524 students. One group of 30 students
(Quiet Lifestyle Learning Community) will occupy a floor of the Syracuse
Sheraton on the edge of campus; in a less popular arrangement, the University is
converting double-occupancy rooms to triple and handing out discounts. No
mention in the article of where the Raucous Lifestyle Learning Community will
rest their heads this fall. From the article:
[J.C.], an undeclared human services and health professions major, said he
would like to live in the Sheraton. However, he would be very upset if the
university placed him in a converted triple, he said.
"I would be very, very shocked and surprised," he said. "I would probably want
to take my money back and transfer to another school. You pay $41,000 to come
to this school and you get put in a room that’s smaller than a prison cell?"
Campus living space as prison cell: such killjoy. Twice as many
roommates to share in the intellectual and social wonders of freshman year!

Added: Oh, okay, so it was “published” back in May. But the item just came through on the DO feed (in Bloglines) yesterday. That’s what I meant. Old, but least it’s not year-old.
