The Hatchet Claims: "Most Students Get Their Top Housing Choices"

The Hatchet featured an article yesterday entitled “Most Students get top housing choices” This is quite a contrast to the tone of the posts by Max and Ian, which expressed deep dissatisfaction with GW Housing Programs and the housing assignment process. The Hatchet interviewed Seth Weinshel, the same man that Max asked us to contact with our housing qualms. The Hatchet quotes him as saying:
"We are pleased with how the assignment process went this year," said Seth Weinshel, an assignment director for GW Housing. "We plan to be able to assign every student on both wait lists." Only 18 percent of students who applied for housing did not get one of their top three residence hall choices, Weinshel said. Four hundred and fifty students were placed on a "non-guaranteed wait list" for University housing.
Even with this quote, which many students seem to disagree with, The Hatchet (the student voice of our campus) refuses to add commentary or criticism to Mr. Weinshel's take on the housing situation. Maybe this is part of the reason why the administration does not address our concerns on this matter.
