Didn't They Learn?
Skuttlebutt is that, after the record breaking, oh-my-God-where-are-we-going-to-put-them-all freshman class that was admitted for this year, the Office of Admissions and Records has, in their infinite wisdom, decided to admit 500 more students than last year.
Yes, you read that right: after overcrowding the housing system this year, the University decided to admit even more freshmen, without doing anything to expand capacity. I know that Newman is expanding, and the Six Pack is supposed to somehow become either a seven or eight-pack, but that's still a few years off, and this problem'll hit next semester.
One would think that OAR wouldn't repeat their recent mistakes.
HUGE-ASS DISCLAIMER (1432, 26 Jan 2006): For those with smaller vocabularies, "scuttlebutt" means rumor or hearsay. This is all unsubstantiated rumor. It does fit within the usual behavior pattern of the university, though, which is why I bothered to post about it.
