Student Claims Houston Hall Renovation Not Fancy Enough, Needs Swimming Pool

It’s never enough: College sophomore Jared Rivkin was extremely disappointed in the Houston Hall renovations unveiled this fall. 

“15.5 million dollars and not one swimming pool in sight,” Rivkin said. “I just don’t get it.” 

Rivkin noted that while other students may be distracted by more variety in food offerings and improvements in seating and lighting, he will never get over the fact that the renovations did not include a pool. 

“You call this a student union? I will never be able to gather with my peers unless I am submerged in a communal body of water,” he said. “This is dismal.”
