Bringing in the Girls

At college, people know full well what they are down for. Boys will not sprout wings and be humbugged with a halo just because girls are around. So if the whip-cracking Czars of the University of Ghana hallucinate that inserting girls into an all-male residence will lasso and tame the boys, then they should have rightly gone with the dinosaur, the dodo, the caveman and other creature-fossils.


  1. Not holding brief, but the idea is not to insert girls among the "offense", rather to totally transform from an all-male undergraduate to a co-ed graduate residential facility.

    Is this a form of punishment - by 'inflicting' girls? Or are the authorities hoping for the creation of new baby students? Let's hope the boys corrupt the girls and the Vandals continue!

  3. Though i understand the thought behind transforming the hall into graduate residence, i am in disagreement because there will be no all-male hall on Legon campus or are they hoping to create a new all-male hall. If they are, well...
    If not, a total no-no. And how is it a punishment to change the gender status of the hall; sharp brains should have come up a better and more fitting 'punishment' to the offense.

    I already feel sorry the first female residents. If they couldn't protect a whole Kofi Annan from harassment....!!

  5. @ Lady Jaye: :-)

    @ Kissi: Are the Czars saying they cannot let the private developers build a post-graduate hostel? They are already very present on the campus. I know it will be more expensive rental, but isn't it the better/easier thing to do?

    @ grahamghana: You're bad, you're bad, you're bad!

    @ Lyrix: Are you suggesting that there must necessarily be an all-male/all-female hall at the university at all times and at all cost?

    @ Kwame Mensa-Bonsu: Exactamente!

  6. ".. at all times and at all costs", no, but in fairness there is an all female hall so why not let the only male hall be or build another one if you feel the behavior of the current all-male hall is unacceptable.

  7. i say the Czars have done what's called 'cos90'.
    no work. they should be lined up and caned for wasting our precious 'developmental-needed-orientation' time!
