Letter: Student’s small world

I am constantly amazed at the numerous signs that show how many GW students believe the world revolves around them. Take, for instance, the editorial (“Close off H Street” Sept. 12, p. 5) suggesting that a block of H Street should be closed off for students’ convenience.

We need to realize that D.C. was not built around GW to serve our own purposes. Rather, as students living on an urban campus, it is our responsibility to adapt to, and even aid, the city we live in.

Perhaps instead of suggesting a costly gate system that would slow down emergency vehicles (next to a hospital, of all places!) and restrict D.C. drivers, GW students should simply stop “crossing anywhere they please, paying little attention to traffic.”
