Hot Issue

Ohio University Senior Kevin Lenahan personalized his dorm room, but housing officials have asked him to tone it down. Lenahan insists he thoroughly reviewed the Department of Residential Housing’s student handbook and nowhere, but nowhere, does it state that hot tubs are not allowed. Yes, he has a jetted hot tub in his room. “I’m an ultra marathon runner,” Lenahan says, “so when I come back from running it’s a nice way to relax the muscles.” Plus, he says, the tub has allowed him to make new friends and meet people from other halls. He’s going on the offensive: “I plan to file a complaint since I didn’t violate any rules,” Lenahan said. (MS/WOUB Cambridge) ...You know, Lenahan has a real future as a lawyer.
