Ugh. 99.9% of undergrad politics at UChicago (LinkRemoved) were people taking stances for/against the uPass.
They still don't have it. NU>UChicago here, for sure.
That is so stupid. UPass is such a great deal and who wouldn't make an average of three trips every two weeks at no marginal cost? Do people just sequester themselves to campus, never leaving the confines of Hyde Park?
You should treat yourself to one with part of the $3000-$4000 less that you pay in tuition than us.
You can't though. It's like, Idunno, 200 some dollars per student, but the university has to sign on to approve it. Students were in favor and passed a ballot measure; admin was like LOLOLOLOL.
They were always on about "you'd have to make more than 4 trips a month! Who does that? Kids who get Cs. DO YOU WANT TO GET A C?" and then when that didn't work, because people would use it more, way more if it were an option, they just said that they didn't want to up tuition. And then they raised tuition like $4000 or something anyway.
BTW, those electric blue shoes are totally professional. Also, adorable. Maybe moreso adorable than professional. But if I were hiring someone and they walked in wearing those, I'd be like "I'm taking the afternoon off so we can go to lunch and shopping, oh and btw you have the job." So...
