There’s no place like stove

Brown is getting ready to add at least 300 new beds on campus as part of the Plan for Academic Enrichment in an effort to relieve the ongoing housing crunch. The new rooms could compensate for such residential catastrophes as last year’s unexpectedly high freshman enrollment that saw unsuspecting first-years living alongside ovens and stoves in converted lounges.

Though these newfangled rooms were definitely hot party venues (those fridges could fit a lot of…beverages), adding new residence halls has more appeal than, say, a swimming pool.

Now all we need is our Faunce steps back (and maybe a foccacia sandwich or two) and we’ll pretend all the new beds aren’t just a ruse to create a preemptive quarantine colony for the next global flu pandemic.
