Allegheny College President Attends Off-Campus Soccer Game While Students Are Forbidden to Leave

“students were ordered to remain on campus, per the school’s strict COVID-19 guidelines”

This is like Pelosi’s salon visit. Same principle. These people don’t live by the rules they want to impose on others.

Campus Reform reports:

Pennsylvania college forbids on-campus students from leaving campus, president attends off-campus soccer game

The president of Allegheny College Hilary Link attended and posted a picture of herself at a soccer game that was off-campus while students were ordered to remain on campus, per the school’s strict COVID-19 guidelines.

On September 10, Link and Gabrielle Morrow from the health agency at the college posted online and sent emails out to students living on campus, notifying them of the mandate. The “on-campus quarantine” required all students to “not leave campus for any reason.” It went on to say that those reasons may include, “trips to area businesses, jobs, or any off-campus locations.”

Parents and students were concerned about the quarantine due to the inability to buy daily necessities. “…my young adult student is not allowed off-campus for any reason. Not for groceries, not for allergy medicine, not for toilet paper.” Stated Kimberly Cahill, parent of a student.

The email also stated, “There is simply no room for non-compliance” and “no room for leniency.” It also asked families to tell their kids to obey the mandate and “if not, they risk jeopardizing the on-campus experience for every single Allegheny student and our faculty and staff.”

Two days later, Link posted a picture of herself on Instagram at an off-campus soccer game.

Students and parents were in shock and reached out to the Meadville Tribune to express their outrage.

Not exactly “Man Bites Dog.” Sorta makes me feel like throwing up. This is is the new Cold War. We have to win it. The election is in a month. Get your second wind and get back to work on electing republicans everywhere on the ballot.

“This is a technique that helps academics feel “safe” with a potentially critical journalist; it’s like letting a dog smell your hand (my apologies—that analogy is unfair. Academics should never be compared to dogs. Dogs are beautiful, beloved creatures, unlike the anthropomorphic colostomy bags that inhabit our nation’s universities).” – David Cole
