24-Hour Guest Policy Petition (Hastings College)
As society enters a modernized state and today’s youth slowly gains more responsibility, we as Hastings College students feel that residence hall regulations require an update to include a 24-hour guest policy. The previous guest policy, governed by societal norms and cultural expectations of the past, is now out of date. Furthermore, the polices of other institutions, including the University of Nebraska Kearney and the University of Nebraska Lincoln, have changed in accordance to modern times whereas our policies have not. If other institutions in the surrounding area can regulate modified guest policies, it only makes sense that Hastings College could implement a 24-hour guest policy that would benefit students without degrading our institution’s values.
