The first paragraph of an article published last Friday on orientation changes ambiguously described the nature of the change to the housing adjustment lottery. While the official “adjustment lottery” will not exist in its current form, there still will be an option for students to move to different dormitories after orientation. The difference is that this year, by default, students will remain in their assigned dorm but may opt-in for a change — as the article originally stated in paragraph four.

This change reflects the orientation committee’s conclusion that, since most students are satisfied with their original summer dorm assignments, REX should refocus on “celebrating dorm culture” rather than explicitly deciding where to live. REX events will still happen — including this year on Tuesday night, when they could not previously.
