More Love Boat fun

The situation on campus has been engaging, to say the least. In the spirit of transparency there's an ongoing community comment page hosted by the college, and it's certainly got a colorful array of opinions.

Also, they've posted pictures of the ship. It really doesn't look so much different from a dorm.

Also, very sad that no kid here probably even gets any of the "Love Boat" references we've been throwing around.

Looks pretty damn swanky.

I think the downside is the rooms only have two beds - no desk, for example. Still, they'll probably convert all their lounge areas into study areas instead. Plus, I work in the library, so, you know, come visit and stuff. :)

It looks charming! Granted living there for months you might see some damage, though.

We are heavily influenced by the St. Mary's River which runs practically right through our campus, so it's actually a pretty "outside the box" kind of idea. Apparently they did similar things in New Orleans after Katrina.

Thanks for the link to the Conversation page. I love how some students thought they should be consulted about the size of their rooms. It's so cute.
While I feel for whichever poor soul in Residential Life has gotten stuck monitoring the responses, it's good that the college is responding as quickly & as thouroghly as they can. It won't soothe every cranky parent or child, but it can help.

Honestly, in the 5 years I've been here, this is a complete 180 from the previous president's way of handling things. It's been transparent, communicative, informative, and timely.

Damn, there are a lot of whiny students and parents on that board. Life happens, if they haven't learned it by now, they need learn to roll with the punches.
