New Telephone Directory Incorrect, Unnecessary

The printed MIT student telephone directory is almost completely wrong. This has resulted from lack of coordination between the Registrar's Office and the Housing Office. You should probably look yourself up and call the number you are listed as. Make a new friend. So far there are no less than four other students listed with my number.

There is probably no reason to have a printed student directory. Students can use the on-line directory or call dormitory desks. In the case of students residing in independent living groups, the number listed in the directory would not help much anyway because it is usually the main ILG number and not the student's personal number.
