The only time cops go on high alert is when someone says free doughnuts.

Why are we spending extra money on additional police? I thought that UVA students follow the Honor Code?

UVA allows frats and orgies to exist. We look the other way to keep our cash cows drunk and happy. After all, they're Cville's largest source of income.

Yes - and there's no other college campus where there's lots of drinking or sex. So if UVA students are drinking and sleeping around its obviously because UVA and C'ville look the other way. If only they'd put their feet down, UVA could be clean and sober and celibate just like all of those other universities.

I think implicit in Huck's post is that UVa--that most "different" of insitutions of higher education with its dedication to Jeffersonian principles and honor code--generally looks downs its nose at other colleges.(Examples include the trite jokes about "inbred, illiterate VTechies".) It is made up of a lot of William Kennedy Smith-wannabes in their blue blazers, oxford shirts and short khakis. So, why would such a prestigious bastion of intellect need extra police patrols?

R.I.P.: The dude who plummeted off the roof of the engineering building. Aaaaaahhhhhh!

Good question, often asked myself the same about Lake Monticello, why would I want to live somewhere that has to have its own full time police force?

Affluent? surely you jest. UVA law school has its merits, but the rest? Not even close to Ivy League, maybe ivy league of the south.

The Lake PD needs to have police to man Hoveround speed traps.

At Princeton, off campus neighborhoods would put signs out on the lawn saying "dogs and students stay off the lawn", the idea being to teach students some degree of respect and humility. Cville takes the opposite approach and you get what we got.
