A graduate of George Washington University is not happy with the school’s new COVID policy for students in dorms.
“I was very sad to see this development,” said Kara Zupkus of Young America’s Foundation (YAF) on The Todd Starnes Show Wednesday.
With the current surge of cases in COVID, D.C.-based George Washington University is tightening its guest policy so students are not able to visit other students in their different dorm buildings.
“This is already on top of George Washington University mandating the vaccine, mandating the booster, and having mandatory testing, pretty much weekly and monthly for these students,” said Zupkus. “It’s really insane that the students are having to put up with this.”
If a student wants to go and hang out or study with a friend, he or she is not able to do that in the other student’s residence hall. Instead, they have to go to a communal place on campus, but Zupkus said that does not make sense.
“If the students are going to hang out, they’re going to hang out regardless of where it happens, so they’re probably going to end up in maybe a more populated space on campus, rather than be in the safety of a dorm room.”
Host Todd Starnes said this is absolutely bonkers.
“We’re talking about college students who are among the least likely to get the China virus and those who do are able to get over it pretty quickly, so I’m not quite sure what the big deal here is,” Starnes added.
Zupkus said GWU is engaged in “really Orwellian stuff,” not following the science.
“This is all about power,” she continued. “Students are paying this university probably tens of thousands of dollars to live in these buildings, so l would probably recommend that they look into moving off-campus because this is just power-hungry trip from these administrators.”
