What is the school so worried about? Do they anticipate roving gangs of Trump supporters in the streets or could it be something else?

GWU advises students to take extreme precautions, stock up on supplies ahead of Election Day

George Washington University in Washington, D.C. is advising students to stockpile supplies, anticipating potential civil unrest following Tuesday’s presidential election.

On Friday, GW’s Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities sent an email to the Washington, D.C. institution’s student body advising students to stockpile food, medications, and other supplies ahead of Tuesday’s election. In the email, students were advised to prepare as if there was going to be a “hurricane or snowstorm.”

The university recommended that students stockpile a week’s worth of provisions in case of civil unrest. However, it strongly suggested that students purchase dry goods with long shelf lives, like pasta, rice, seeds, nuts, grains, and canned food. In the email, students were also advised to keep their student identification cards with them at all times and to be more diligent about preventing unauthorized persons from entering dormitories than usual.

Normally, the Office of Student Rights And Responsibilities handles affairs related to student conduct and discipline. However, in this contentious political environment, it has been tasked with sending this particular warning to students.

An earlier advisory, issued Wednesday, told students that “if there is a disturbance” they should “shelter indoors until normal conditions return.” This advisory suggested that students should be on and near campus on Election Day only if necessary and that they should take numerous precautions.

GW said it would also monitor the security situation in Washington, D.C.

Wouldn’t want to run out of ramen, lubricants, condoms and toys in a pique of passion.

Don’t forget toilet paper. Get LOTS of toilet paper.
