More on Living with Students

Ξ February 16th, 2010 | → Comments Off | ∇ Highland Park |


In a rather serendipitous moment, I listened to an archived episode of This American Life over the weekend that dealt with the issues of living in a college town.  In this case, residents were grappling with 80,000 undergraduates in University Park, Pennsylvania instead of 1,800 in Eagle Rock.  Still some of the stories sounded quite similar, and even a few of my assumptions didn’t hold water in a University of California study referenced in the story.  For example, stepped up enforcement off campus didn’t simply displace the problem.  However, educating students on the dangers of drinking didn’t effect drinking at all.  Large state universities are probably not a fair comparison to Occidental, but if this is a topic you’re interested in, this will be an educational show for you.  Enjoy.
