Now that College Town is almost complete, Rochester officials have sent out a press release confirming its demolition in the beginning of 2016.
“We now realize that College Town is not making as great of a profit as we had originally hoped, so it is a better financial decision for the Rochester community to raze all of the buildings. The demolition crew will provide dozens of temporary jobs for our construction workers,” the release said.
Administrators are ecstatic that they will no longer have to run bus lines through College Town. “Less money for us to spend! Woohoo!” exclaimed one university official. The bus drivers are even happier since they no longer have to drive the boring, short route to and from College Town.
“It’s so monotonous,” said one bus driver. “Now, I won’t have to abandon nearly as many kids trying to catch the bus.”
Some students have complained about the recent decision.
“It seems to me like the developers and construction crew wasted a lot of time building College Town. And no more Insomnia Cookies? That was such a tease,” said one freshman.
Other students seem to be unfazed by the news.
“It’s a lot more convenient to put the bookstore back on campus, anyway. I was too lazy to get my overpriced textbooks at the Barnes & Noble in College Town, so now I can just get my overpriced textbooks right here on campus again,” explained an upperclassman.
Demolition is set to begin February 10, 2016.
