Meth Lab Found In Georgetown Univ Residence Hall - October 23, 2010, 01:30 PM



By Daniel de Vise
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, October 23, 2010; 1:28 PM

When students at Harbin Hall were rousted from their beds by Georgetown University officials at 6 a.m. Saturday, some thought it might be a cruelly timed fire drill.

It was something odder still: Campus police had discovered a cache of chemicals for making methamphetamines inside a room on the top floor of the freshman residence hall.

Police arrested three male students Saturday morning, hours after evacuating 400 students from the nine-floor hall.

Students struggled to reconcile the discovery of a suspected meth lab with their image of Georgetown, a prim national university with a scholarly and somewhat preppie culture.

"I would understand if someone got caught doing it. Making it, that's different. It's shocking," said Gina Park, 19, a sophomore from Hong Kong.

A Harbin resident called campus police about 5 a.m. to report a strange odor coming from a room on the ninth floor. Officers went to the room and found "chemicals consistent with a meth lab, but no actual drugs," said Officer Istmania Bonilla, a Metropolitan Police spokeswoman.

By 6 a.m., "people were going around pounding on doors, saying, 'You need to evacuate,'" said Natalie Muller, 18, a Harbin resident. Hundreds of freshmen poured out in the chilly morning air in pajamas and were sent to the dining hall and student center. Students were briefly allowed back inside the building three hours later, then ordered to leave again.

"We didn't find out until 2 1/2 or 3 hours later what was going on," said Katya Funk, 18, a bleary-eyed freshman in a sweatsuit. "It's been so much fun."

No student was harmed, said Julie Green Bataille, university spokeswoman. Three unidentified male students were held for questioning as displaced Harbin Hall residents milled around among rescue vehicles and drug-sniffing dogs. Gawkers included the university's Bulldog mascot.

Georgetown students, as with many colleges, are known for occasional binge drinking and casual drug use. Hard drugs are less common, students said, and a meth lab in a freshman dorm room was heretofore unknown.

"For this campus, this is very out of the norm," said Kayla Bostwick, 18, a Harbin resident. "This should not happen.

That's not a picture of the actual lab though right? Articles say it was in a dorm room. That shit looks like its in a run down bathroom somewhere. And like its been there for a while. I doubt these dudes converted the community bathroom on their floor into a working, standing lab. Plus that shit looks run down. No way a Gtown dorm's bathroom looks like that.

Edit: Nevermind, that pic is all over the web - DIY Project: Fake Urban Meth Lab - Diamond Dusted and Rhinestoned

gtown isn't ivy league.

It is the most expensive fucking university in the States, however, and it takes a special dumbass to piss his life away doing this in that school.

Not part of the original Ivy League no, but considered to be on par with them.

You are either in it or not, kind of like the the Founding Fathers - you don't go adding JFK to them years later either....

It's the Ancient Eight for a reason...

Thank you Mr. Semantics for saving the day.

No, Dutch, Gtown is not part of the Ivy League but there are a handful of schools that are considered to be the contemporary counterparts and on par with them who are sometimes referred to as the "New Ivies."

Off the top of the head, Cornell, M.I.T., Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, NYU, Rensselaer Poly, Tufts, Emory, Georgetown and a few other fall into that bucket.

Gee, Heist, no need to get all condescending - just use the correct terms and stop making shit up. Folks around here are liable to believe anything you say as gospel, so don't defile the cloth and twist the facts Jack.

While a fine school with diligent students (chem labs in dorms etc.), Georgetown is not one of your so called 'New Ivies'.

According to the latest list compiled this August, the new Ivies would be: Carnegie Mellon, Duke, Johns Hopkins, New York U, Northwestern, Tufts, UVA, Washington U in St. Louis, Wellesley and Williams. (Unigo's New Ivies)

Newsweek also did not include Georgetown in its list of new Ivies:
New Ivies

  • Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
  • Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine
  • Colby College, Waterville, Maine
  • Colgate University, Hamilton, New York
  • New York University, New York City, New York
  • Olin College of Engineering, Needham, Massachusetts
  • Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, New York
  • University of Rochester, Rochester, New York
  • Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York
  • Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts
  • Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Davidson College, Davidson, North Carolina
  • Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia
  • University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
  • Rice University, Houston, Texas
  • Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee
  • University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia
  • Claremont Colleges: Harvey Mudd and Pomona, Claremont, California
  • Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio
  • Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota
  • University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana
  • Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, Missouri
  • Reed College, Portland, Oregon
  • University of California – Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California


so no..Georgetown does not fall into that bucket..nor does MIT..nor does Cornell....

Sigh...

^^^I'm glad my reply encouraged you to do some research.
I wasn't trying to be condescending either, I was just surprised (1) you didn't know about the New Ivies and (2) got hung up on me using the word "original" and then comparing them to Gtown.

BTW - I'm certain Gtown, Cornell, & MIT were on the list at one point.
I guess no longer.

MIT doesn't need to be on a list of whatever "ivy" means. It's the number one engineering school. On earth. And until we discover Vulcan is actually a real planet, likely the galaxy.

Actually I did know and was pretty sure I had not heard Gtown in that conversation - hence laying out the facts for you.

Sorry The Google failed you and did not show a list with them on it...

oh well, there will always be funny rap videos
