Kelsey Bonham started this petition to Colgate University Students and

I'm a junior at Colgate, and I have yet to have a positive experience with any aspect of the Office of Residential Life or its processes at this institution. I have repeatedly tried to resolve my issues with them, fighting to be able to live in housing that makes me feel safe and comfortable, and I have repeatedly been ignored. The Office of Residential Life is central to providing individual students with a safe and positive college experience, as well as to fostering our community as a whole, and in my experience, they need to do better. I believe that this is an experience that is shared by many Colgate students. I believe that the Office of Residential Life and all of its lottery systems need a major overhaul, so that more students can be satisfied with their housing options. Whether it's denying too many applications for senior off-campus housing, splitting underclassmen roommate groups, being denied accommodations that you need, or any other wrong, if you think that the Office of Residential Life needs a serious examination by the administration of this University, I ask that you sign this petition so that I can help prove to the administration that their community is unsatisfied with the work being done in this Office. If you're a student, parent, faculty, or staff, and you've had a negative experience with the Office of Residential Life, please sign, and feel free to comment your story if you're comfortable. And if you are not comfortable sharing publicly but you would be willing to share privately, I am collecting testimonials which can be entirely anonymous to everyone except myself if you'd like, and which I would send all together to the Dean of Residential Life and other relevant administration (not to be shared with students or student groups); you can email me at kbonham@colgate.edu. All the help is greatly appreciated, and I hope that this could help change things for current and future students.
