Of Wien and Weirdness
Written by Bwog Staff
As if merely residing there wasn’t bad enough, Wien inmates may be subjected to room searches this coming Friday…if stolen furniture isn’t returned to the dorm’s lounge. Offenders will be subject to the Dean’s Discipline process – yes, the very same punishment handed to those determined to be the worst violators of university rules during the Minuteman stage-rush incident. The euphemistic but ultimately threatening
notice (complete with warm and fuzzy language about violented “sense of community”) is reproduced below the jump.
In other news, two guys in the figure skating costumes worn by Will Ferrell and Jon Heder in the upcoming film Blades of Glory were spotted taking promotional photos with students on Low Plaza this afternoon. “They do not love their jobs,” reported our tipster.
The Office of Residential Programs is committed to providing a residential experience that encourages respect, mutual understanding, and a sense of community. When individuals in our community remove furniture from our common lounge for private usage, the community is impacted. Wien RAs previously sent an e-mail encouraging the prompt return of all lounge furniture, which did result in some furniture reappearing.
The primary goal is to have the furniture returned to the lounge immediately so that our entire community can benefit from the use of the lounge. Our last resort will be to conduct room searches; however, if all of the furniture is not returned by 9 am on March 23, 2007, Residential Programs, Housing, and Facilities staff will enter residential rooms between 10am and 5pm on that date. Any piece of furniture found will immediately be removed from the room and returned to the lounge. Each resident who has furniture in their room will be subject to the Dean’s Discipline process. We hope that we will not have to take this step so would appreciate everyone’s cooperation in resolving this matter.
I appreciate your consideration of the Wien community.
