The Williams shit has hit the fan so hard that now even Ivygate is covering this, stating “Though Williams falls outside of IvyGate’s traditional purview, we just couldn’t ignore this. Looks like Williamstown is starting to give New Haven a run for Biggest College Toilet-Town in New England.”
What’s going on at Williams? Well, Amanda Korman of the Williams Record reports:
Talk about the cusp of a trend: the term “bio-cleanup” does not appear in the Oxford English Dictionary or Wikipedia, and yet it has been at the tip of administrators’ and custodians’ tongues since the beginning of the school year. The term refers to any custodial cleanup of vomit, urine or fecal matter on College property, particularly in common or residential areas. As of Sunday, an unprecedented 24 bio-cleanups have been performed on campus, a trend many find disconcerting.
In fact, it’s so bad that the editorial in their paper today begs:
The bottom line: it is not Merrill’s job to control our bodily functions. Asking the administration to do so is absurd. It’s our job to remain in control of our bodies, and our job to foster a culture that does not accept the kind of destruction we’ve been seeing this semester.
And our administration worries about chalking. Hmmph!
