On January 8 we ran a student op-ed entitled ‘Student Housing Not up to Snuff For High Cost of Living’ which was recently revealed contained some inaccuracies. The article centered around four students experiences living in Seattle Central’s student housing offered at ‘The Studios on Broadway’ and their concerns on internet connectivity, broken washing machines, and apartment security.
A recent follow up with International Admissions for Seattle Central reveals that three of the four students quoted have not resided at ‘The Studios on Broadway’ since fall 2011 and that the fourth may not have at all. As such we have removed the article as it may not represent the current conditions of the student housing.
I sincerely apologize for the mistake and steps are being taken to avoid inadvertent error in the future. We at New City Collegian firmly believe in accurate and timely reporting and have zero tolerance for inaccurate or misleading information. We plan to send reporters to investigate the current conditions of the student housing and speak with current residents of the housing.
