Cleveland Community College has a lot of pride in its reputation for being one of the best high school programs in the nation, and it is the reason the Cuyahogs are the only team in the country to win an NCAA Division I national championship in each of the last five seasons.
But, in the minds of many of the city’s young people, it has also become something of a cockroach infestation.
“It’s like a cockroaches nest,” says one of those who has witnessed the infestation firsthand.
“I think there’s a sense that we have an infestation here.
I think we are like a swarm of cockroach.
“They don’t do much good, really. “
Cockroach schools, especially, they’re always trying to make a quick buck,” says a senior, who asked that we not use his last name because he feared for his safety.
“They don’t do much good, really.
They make money for themselves.
But what we’ve got here is like a big, huge, bad, nasty, nasty hive of cockroach.
The school’s president, Dan Pomeroy, says it’s been an issue for years. “
There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world.”
The school’s president, Dan Pomeroy, says it’s been an issue for years.
“We’re just trying to educate our kids about cockroache health and the importance of staying out of the way,” he says.
“Our primary concern is to make sure that the environment for cockroachers is as safe as possible.”
But he admits that his administration is aware of the problem.
“It’s an issue that has been raised,” he tells the New York magazine.
“But we don’t really have the resources to tackle it on a day-to-day basis.”
The university has a long history of dealing with cockroaching problems.
In the 1950s, the school installed two cockroach-proof fences that were eventually removed, but Pomerow says that the school has since implemented several other measures.
In addition to the fences, he says, the university has installed several cameras in classrooms and other buildings, and has hired an exterminator to monitor the schools in case cockrocs are in the building.
In all, he estimates, the cost of keeping cockrocks out of his schools has been around $20,000.
“The cost of getting cockroch infections in the dorms, we can’t pay for that,” he adds.
“This isn’t just a problem at Cuyahoogans.
It doesn’t just affect us.
We have thousands of students here.”
The problem has been reported to the city health department, which is currently working on a comprehensive plan to combat the infestations.
The university is currently offering a $25,000 scholarship to students who come up with creative ways to get rid of cockers, and is also partnering with a nonprofit organization called the Cockroach Control and Education Foundation to help schools implement safety measures.
The foundation is also in the process of creating a curriculum for all schools that will include information about the dangers of cockerid bites, and will also work with community members to implement measures to help keep cockrochy students and staff away from the dorm rooms.
The university has also been working with its local partners to get cockrobers off campus.
In May, the college opened a new campus building to house cockrober students.
And last month, the CCC launched a $250,000 “Coalition for the Eradication of Cockroaches” to help students with the task of identifying cockroching infestants and making sure the cockroach problems are not spread to the campus.
The CCC is not alone in dealing with the problem of cock roaches on campus.
Other schools have tried to combat cock roaching on their campuses, too.
In 2016, the University of Georgia released a new cockroach control strategy to address the problem, and in 2019, the state of Georgia implemented a plan to eradicate cockroachy infestans on all state-owned land, including private land.
Both of these initiatives, though, were met with strong criticism from some residents who said the schools were trying to get rich quick by developing a quick fix that would leave them financially unable to pay for the measures they’re taking.
