Why Canadian Colleges are Better than US Colleges

I miss living in the dorms.

There's a substantive reason why I posted this, honestly. Look at the response of the University...
"We certainly regret this has happened; it's not something the university condones and we are very disappointed in these students, but rooms in residence are considered to be students' homes, and what goes on between consenting adults in the privacy of their homes is considered to be their business," said Susan Grindrod, Western's vice-president of housing.

"What's different in this case is that these pictures are going all over the world. With the Internet and personal blogs, pictures can be circulated very quickly, and I'm not sure how we would regulate students' blogs and websites even if we wanted to," said Grindrod.
Maybe you could suspend them from school for posting things that you don't like. I hear that's a popular way to deal with unseemly blog material.

Can you imagine Marquette trying to deal with something like this? Even worse, imagine the Dental School administration dealing with this. Their heads would explode! If being a little buzzed after a champagne brunch is considered binge drinking, then this would be Sodom and Gomorrah Part 2.

And yes, the pictures are online. In order to give a truly fair and balanced view in this post, I checked them out. I've got one thing to say: giggity.
