Breaking News! College Dorms Noisy!
An article in Saturday's Star Tribune talks about a very near and dear subject: dormitory noise levels. The tone of the piece is light-hearted and runs alongside the Emmy predictions in the print edition. It talks about how some students have trouble confronting roommates, suite-mates, and neighbors with complaints about noise, ruckus and "--not to mention loud intimate encounters in adjoining rooms..." (Rosenblum). The article is a good piece for the front page of the Source section, which covers arts, entertainment, and other human interest articles. The article is balanced; it doesn't list towards the side of the noisy students or the side of the victimized students. One problem I found with the article is that, while it does offer one community advisor's opinions on how to fix these kind of interpersonal problems, Rosenblum doesn't offer any alternative fixes.
