Disappointed: Alex, I did not read the editorial in the D today, but as a Midwesterner, I must say how disappointed I am to see that blatant placeism is allowed in the D’s pages. They just don’t understand how hard it is to be from another place on the map, how hard it is to deal with East Coast bias, how one does not feel welcome. I feel stigmatized…and it hurts. I think a new dean should be hired to help these students break through the institutionalized placeism at the College. It just goes to show that these things can even happen at an Ivy League college. Additionally, affinity housing should be established so that these students don’t have to deal with those other students who hate them so.
