Ups and Downs

Up: Residential Life lifts restrictions on student housing
The Office of Residential Life restored the block housing options for students and is considering creating speciality housing for incoming freshmen who will not be able to live in existing Residential Learning communities, though that option will not be available for next year.

Up: New project could create more job opportunities in Ithaca
A $30 million project, currently awaiting approval by the Planning and Development Board of Ithaca, would renovate a block on The Commons known as “Harold’s Square” and bring more office and retail space to Ithaca’s downtown.

Down: Academic Enrichment Services struggle to meet students’ needs
Academic Enrichment Services has stopped accepting students’ requests for tutoring this semester because tutors are booked and unable to take on more students. The department has implemented a deadline for tutoring requests for the first time in its history.
