    I believe this statement from the story by the Assistant Dean of Students is inconsistent with the ideals of supporting BU students. Why is the city the first place this Dean wants the support to come from. This is quite telling on the areas in need of improvements in the Dean of Student Office.

    “We’re so fortunate no one was hurt,” Battaglino said. “The students know that once they go through services available to them through the city, our goal is to help make sure they are ready to get to class and back on their feet.”

    That office can do better.

    1. Thank you for your comment. The students were living in off-campus housing, a Boston apartment, so the University has no purview over their housing situation. However, BU does have an emergency services fund it uses to assist students in cases of lost property, for example, and to help them get back on their feet, and that is available to them. — The Editors
