Reflection StatementI think the school is taking the easy road and doesnt want to be liable for anything therefore they make all these rules that prohibit anyone on campus to have fun. The campus is becoming more and more unbearable by the moment. On the weekends it is so boring there is no one here except a whole lot of public safety.
That is why people enjoy them selves and use substances, but the university doesnt look at any of these aspects realistically. The university is living in the 1950s and very ideal 1950s at that. The policies are so dated it isnt funny. Not being able to have a member of the opposite sex in your suite sounds like something out of a Mormon school. What is the university afraid ofthat the kids (I mean to say students but that how the university looks at them) are going to have sex? The students are all 18 and over who cares. It isnt like the kids cant have sex before 2 am and after 10 am.
Thats such a weak rule and position. I cant even come up with a reason why they made that one other than to reign down on the students with a little life inhibiting catholic morality which in itself is rather foolish. But back to the alcohol rulethats just there because the university doesnt feel like being responsible for students who are drunk. Thats college and there is no way they will stop it so I think the university should decriminalize it. It should be if youre under 21 you should be written up. Why wait until your in graduate school to let someone drink.
I will be a 21-year-old junior and your going to tell me I cant drink. Thats not agreeing with me.Further more I think this reflection paper is stupid because I feel like I am being treated like a child. If I have not been found in violation why in the hell am I being forced to type a 3-page paper? I have more important things to do like hang out, school work, and things that dont require me to write stupid papers. This is just childish. Since you guys couldnt fine me on anything you guys could not let me go could you. You had to get that last word or to say that you somehow got over on me.
That is childish. Another reason why this paper is meaningless is because no matter what I write here it has absolutely no bearing on what action has been taken place. But you will probably tell me that you want to hear what I have to say which I totally do not believe. I think you guys really dont care but it is a nice thing to do and let the students write up a little something.
Bottom line I think this is stupid. I rather talk to you face to face about these things than type something up. I took 10 minutes out my time to write this joke of a paper. I could be doing my homework or studying for my mid term but instead I am doing this.If this happens again I will take the same position like last time because I am not a rat and you will never turn me against my suite mates because I am not that kind of person.
Meeting with us individually was really clever. So you can get a suite member to trip up in his or her words. I felt I was on trial for murder or something. Alcohol is not that serious. It isnt crack cocaine.
now that something to make a big deal about.The most important thing I learned in this incident is that who stupid people could be and how people could make something out of nothing and how childish and disconnected from reality older people could be. To make someone who supposedly was not found in violation of anything do a paper, which does serve as a punishments. The same people who thought is was a good idea for me to write up a reflection paper is probably getting a good pat on the back for this.
