FRIEDMAN | Discovering Refuge

I lately learn The Solar’s article, “College students Query Hygiene, Security of West Campus Gothics” with a watchful eye, as simply eight months in the past I used to be a resident of one of many West Campus Gothics. I might establish with most of the described considerations, in addition to the jealousy of the Gothic residents. Nevertheless, I believe the attractive, distinctive nature of the Gothics and their proximity to West Campus Eating makes them fairly luxurious in comparison with the absurd new “Jameson Quads,” during which 4 college students are pressured to dwell in areas that beforehand served as widespread rooms.

As everyone knows, college students compete vociferously for the possibility to achieve admission to Cornell. In return, Cornell makes categorically problematic housing choices that make college students query their worth to the College. The Soviet-style aesthetics of dorms like Jameson and Excessive-Rise 5 have at all times been a bastardization of the purported Cornell expertise. Even nonetheless, these so-called “quads” symbolize a very new low. Cornell invested tens of tens of millions of {dollars} with the intention to completely revamp North Campus with the North Campus Residential Growth. Apparently tens of tens of millions of {dollars} are usually not sufficient to protect scholar lounge entry. As a substitute, the administration chooses to cram desks and beds into those self same lounges in order that college students can dwell like sardines. And that is speculated to be the Ivy League expertise?

I’m not advocating for luxurious dwelling for first-year college students or something of the type. I’m merely popping out towards false promoting and warning future college students to not belief the supposed benevolence of the College. Name me pretentious for asking them to ship on their guarantees. Name me pretentious for asking the College to take away any mentions of Ivy League “excellence” from their official communication channels or their superbly choreographed brochures till they showcase the actual, unfiltered situations of dwelling right here. I could make one assure: The expertise of dwelling in one among these quads won’t ever obtain a function on the Cornell Chronicle or official Cornell social media.
