The Neighborhood Review Committee should be coming out with its recommendations soon. Predictions? See here and here for useful Record coverage and here for related posts.

Leadership is an over-used term at Williams. But the NRC (and especially its student members) have a real chance to demonstrate some leadership when it comes to housing at Williams. They should propose a version of their Proposal III (sophomores living together with upperclassmen having a campus-wide room draw) and then campaign for it, organizing a campus referendum on the idea. In this context, leadership means, not just doing what often-ill informed students want you to do, but what will actually lead to a better housing system at Williams. Sophomores together and juniors/seniors with free agency is the first step in a better direction.

Then, next year, CUL can implement my plan (pdf).
