LIVE FROM THE HOUSING LOTTERY: BEDLAM

IMG_4509

Behind gated off parts of Gund Ballroom, four-person NCA groups scrambled to find four more. Who will be pulled in? Friends? Enemies? Lovers?

Tensions are high as the last few NCAs are going. The four person NCAs are taken, gone for good. Voices are rising. I have seen at least one person crying. Those who were told to come at 8:30 are getting bored, and the Internet connections are going in and out. Only two questions are on these seniors’ minds:

  1. Where will they live (if they survive this ordeal)? And…
  2. When will they finish their homework?
