Twitter Causing Endless Parties at LMU! (Not really)
Chris Lesinski and I attend Loyola Marymount University (LMU) located in LA . It’s located in the quiet neighborhood of Westchester. Westchester residents, however, are quite vocal when it comes to off-campus parties. KNBC4 picked up on the story and attributes the problem to new-fangled “micro-blogging” technology.
On the plus side, one of Chris’s article in the Loyolan go some screen time. Look for it towards the end.
The video is typical of local news stations poorly attempting to make a big deal out of a small problem. LMU has been in the neighborhood decades longer than any residents have been. Of course there are going to be house parties. Those house parties will be scattered all over the neighborhood if fraternities aren’t all allocated to one space, like a Greek Row. It sounds like Weschester residents are having a bit of buyer’s remorse.
How is the party scene around your school? Does law enforcement regularly break up parties or do they just let them go? Leave us a comment!
