Last night Residence Life ran out of roomsto assign to returning students.The rooms ran out around 9 p.m. HeadResident of Alternative Housing Kelsey Trustysaid the remaining students were wait listed.
“The students on the waiting list will ll out
a housing preference form of what area theywould like to live in next year,” Trusty said.“The students will be taken off the waiting listby lottery number and assigned to a room.”Trusty said she did not know what the planis to make room for the students on the wait-ing list but she said Residence Life has a planand Associate Director of Residence Life Den-nis Goshorn and Assistant Dean of StudentsLindsey Taylor will be able to clarify what theplan is soon.Trusty said students were of course upsetwhen they were told no more rooms wereavailable, but they handled the news verywell.“I saw tears and angry faces,” Trusty said.“Emotions run high even for students whohave great lottery numbers but I was reallyproud of the way the students handled them-selves. It could have been a lot worse than itwas.”Trusty said there are still certain halls thatare blocked off for incoming freshmen nextyear.Residence Life made changes to the roomselection procedures this year with hopes of asmoother process.Goshorn was the guest speaker at the SGAmeeting on Mar. 15. Goshorn said that theroom selection process would be a little differ-ent this year.Goshorn said there would be no makeupday for students who paid their prepaymentlate or for students without a roommate.“We will assign those students as soon aswe are able,” Goshorn said.Goshorn said there was a bulletin board onVikingWeb this year that allowed students tosearch for a roommate. The goal of this changewas to decrease the number of students atroom selection without a roommate.
