Senior Matt Ingoglia, a Hatchet columnist, addresses the recent e-mail incident concerning Ivory Tower, and offers further suggestions for curbing vandalism in the residence hall.
The number of broken ceiling tiles littering the hallways of Ivory Tower seems to be multiplying with each passing weekend, far outnumbering the potential solutions to this problem.
It is clear that both the University and most GW students would like this behavior to end. Sadly, last week’s e-mail from Residential Property Management announcing that all residents would shoulder the cost of vandalism to common areas did not help. Although RPM rightfully retracted this unauthorized policy in a subsequent e-mail, it failed to provide an alternative solution.
