That's fine. They're just releasing impoverished drug addicts who didn't know their rights well enough to avoid arrest. They won't be hanging around the campus.
Having done undergrad at Santa Clara I can attest to this one fact: we lived in a bubble. I saw, without hyperbole, no homeless people during my entire tenure there. A-mazing. Not like some urban schools where homeless are crawling all over the place. No thank you. Eric Cartman is my hero. He jumps over the homeless professionally. Once jumped over 30 homeless people, but could easily have cleared 40 or 50.
