Zahm Pledge to Withhold Donations to the University of Notre Dame
Besides what it already has done to Zahm this year, Notre Dame's administration has decided to take Zahm's common rooms away, to reconfigure the House, and to change room picks at the last minute (the previous petition was disregarded by the administration: www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-zahm-common-rooms).
Since ND reslife and housing have tried to destroy Zahm, the closest-knit community of the University with which we or our sons identify, and since they won’t listen to its residents and alumni and their parents,
we pledge to withhold all financial contributions or merely to make the official minimum annual donation necessary for football lottery participation to the University in perpetuity until and unless:
(1) the common rooms/room configurations/bedspaces/room picks are restored,
(2) authorities cease their punitiveness, and
(3) the uniqueness of ND’s traditional hall system is upheld.
If the ND “family” that administrators talk about is more than simply rhetoric, the situation needs to be addressed.
