  7. The % rent increase at Grad College is higher than % stipend increase: Katie pursued the issue with the GSG and was assured that this is only b/c Grad College is in a special category, together with undergrad dorms, and is not a general slipping of the recently fought-for policy of only increasing rent at rate of stipend increase.
