A bit of happy/unhappy news [Apr. 11th, 2005|10:29 pm]
darkskywatcher
So if you have not heard at this point, you'll find out soon enough: Phi Psi is losing its house next year. No question. Some sort of thing may be thrown together to house some quantity of us, but we all are doing room draw. So what do I wind up with, after a lot of worry on my part that all the Wood singles would be filled? 330 Wood Tower C. That's right, I am now officialy a conquistador of Tower C for BSFFA. I fee a sudden desire for 16th century Spanish armor.
So awesome. I even have West facing windows which, while not giving me nearly the view I had this year, will keep the early morning sun out. And maybe being a little removed from tower will be good for me. It certainly made housing easier.
There is stil the (very remote) possibility that some sort of housing may be cobbled toegether by Winkie for Phi Psi next year, but I can't forsee having to live there. So for the time being I get a weird sort of getting to have my cake and eat it too: being in Phi Psi without alienating myself from the BSFFA house that I love so much and have given so much too.
On the other hand, my Philosophy paper is a day late, BelCon was terrible, I skipped my morning classes, etc. So it's really been a day of extremes. But I feel good right now. That should and will change at some point, but for now it's cool.

Hm. Seems like the situation could have been handled in a much better fashion than this (by the committees, not by Phi Psi, though I'm sure they bear their share of it). Frats without houses are sad frats.

But on the whole a move is probably a positive thing, as you say.

This isn't a decision on the part of any committee. This is straight up John and his perception of Phi Psi's dwindling support. Reslife Comm. voted to keep us 840 this year.

I suspect this is a sign post on the way to the morge, but I guess we'll see.

I'm not convinced of that - you have more members (in the sense of people who support the house) than a lot of clubs that are given houses.

As for john making unilateral decisions - well, that makes more sense still. Reslife committee irks me - very little actual influence. Most of the committee is his lapdog, and he just ignores anything he doesn't like.
