Brilliant Housing Office Ideas
Ok, whose brilliant idea was it in the housing office to schedule senior housing selection night on a weekday evening at a residential campus?
For those of you who may not be familiar with evening classes, they are often upper-level (thus filled with juniors and seniors) and meet once a week. By scheduling housing selection on a weekday evening, the brilliant housing people have basically forced half of my evening class to forego a whole week’s worth of class in order to get their housing selected by lottery- and they have to do it in person.
Since it is a residential housing selection, I would think scheduling these things on a weekend, when student classes would not be interrupted, would be a far better idea. If they can interrupt their academic careers for housing selection, sticking around for a Sunday night shouldn’t be a huge deal, either. In fact, I know it isn’t- that was when housing selection at my college was.
