Lest you be concerned about colleges coddling students

Daniel Drezner expresses concern over "copter parents," which leads into laments in comments about coddled students. Swarthmore, however, seems to have different priorities: the dorm I'm living in (Parrish) is under renovation and is adjacent to academic buildings. The loud noises start at about 7 in the morning and end at 9 in the morning. Apparently, being able to sit peacefully in class (and the professor's being able to do their work peacefully) is more important than the students getting a full night's sleep.
