Housing and Dining, being too cool for email announcements, has stealthily added a “New in 2009” part to the room selection section of its website. The new policies:

  • “The Same Room/Same Suite policy has been eliminated. All students who wish to reside in Housing must go through the Room Selection process.
  • 30 point senior groups will pick before 30 point EC Exclusion Suite groups.
  • Groups of 5 seniors have the option to pick into an EC Exclusion Suite.
  • Sophomore groups in Suite Selection have the option to split up into groups of 2 and pick into corridor-style doubles during Sophomore Pair Up.”

What possessed Housing to commit such madness (well, aside from the sophomore pairing up idea) is unknown at this time.
