Housing Process Should Be Done By Seniority!

This petition had 129 supporters

The housing selection process this year is completely unfair towards upperclassmen at Merrimack College.  The process is guaranteeing housing for freshmen and sophomores.  While I understand the freshmen getting housing, I dont get why sophomores are guaranteed housing.  In previous years, the housing selection process has been done by order of seniority.  Freshmen followed by seniors, juniors, and sophomores is a much more fair and appropriate approach to the situation.  There has never been this much of a problem using the old housing system, and frankly, this new method is insane.  At the current rate of the campus population increasing (1100-1300 incoming freshmen this year), we should not be guaranteeing sophomores housing.  There is already a lack of housing on campus as it is with doubles being turned to forced triples, and suites being forced to put a fifth person in as well.  This entire situation seems irresponsible by the college and they should really think about the students opinion on this matter.
