Separation of RBA Issues Is Key

I was pleased to find that Tuesday’s editorial about Residence Based Advising separated the issues of RBA and Residence Exploration. For too long the student complaint was aimed at RBA itself, which is unfortunate — many students might opt for the RBA program if it was flexible and suited to their housing preference, which many freshmen rank higher than their advising preference. Though I never participated in RBA, I’ve heard overwhelmingly positive experiences, and look forward to the day that more students are willing and able to participate — once the snafu about REX is fixed.
