Georgetown Students Rallying to Keep Sidewalks Clear and Accessible

More than 100 Georgetown students signed up to help clear sidewalks around campus to make sure it remains accessible through a rally that began a few minutes ago. From their Facebook event announcement today:

“It’s clear that Facilities has been doing its best to keep up with the snow, but as totals mount, accessibility to all buildings has suffered. Wheelchair and alternative access routes have been conspicuously bad. With many differently-abled Hoyas here on campus, we have a responsibility to ensure that ALL Hoyas can get to their classes, residence halls, and facilities.”

Some alternatives being offered if students don’t have shovels:
– Old Leo’s trays (I’m sure some of you have them)
– Rakes
– Forks, knives, spoons (good for breaking up ice)
– Table salt
