Middlebury students trash town before leaving - VT Digger

Pretty classy Ivy League stuff, here. Good thing controversial sociologist Charles Murray won’t be speaking to the Leaders of Tomorrow at Middlebury College later on this month - can’t imagine what (this hopefully small percentage of destruction-prone) Middlebury students would have done to him.

Damage included broken glass, stolen signs, strewn garbage, smashed furniture and windows, and items thrown into trees. Facilities staff spent the weekend cleaning up messes across campus. Middlebury students were required to leave campus by Sunday at 5 p.m. under a plan announced Tuesday to avoid the potential spread of the virus. Remote learning, beginning on March 30, is to remain in effect until further notice. Administrators will reevaluate the new policy during the first two weeks of April.
Tim Parsons, college landscape horticulturist and staff council president, said that two employees generally walk the campus twice a week for two hours to clear the outdoor areas of trash and other hazards. On Thursday and Friday, it took teams of five the entire day. “There are seniors seeing people maybe for the last time ever, I get it,” Parsons said. “But why take it out on other people here? You’re part of a community.”

    What’s hard to believe these days is why parents are willing to pay/go into debt for this kind of “higher” education for their kids. But after they leave, I’m sure Soros can direct them to other places in the country where Antifa is recruiting.

    Is there anything more disrespectful than, young, rich, entitled, urban refugees ? Were there similar issues at Lyndon/Johnson, and Castleton ? My money is on no .

    Congratulations Middlebury; you managed to extend infancy through their senior year at university.

    Hard to believe no one saw the “spoiled brats” doing this.
