I’d like to share my viewpoint on your recent subject of hall monitors and cramped space.
As a parent of a female sophomore, I support the hall monitor. I assume there is no other reason for firing the monitors other than money.
Well, I would think the Notre Dame administration should and can find money for Our Lady’s most treasure asset: the students.
Maybe Notre Dame can divert some money from athletics budget to reinstate the monitors or even build more dorms.
Or maybe raising $100 a year on the kids’ tuition: $100 x 9000 students equals a lot of monitors.
Or divert some of the money from the $3.50 Cokes sold at football concession stands.
I think the money is there to enhance student’s life in every mundane way.
Parents pay tuition and expect their children to be safe, and have a good education.
By the way, when will Notre Dame convert some of the extra space in the 75 million dollars Performance Arts building to dorm space?
