Why would they check his office? We have cars that we ticket dozens of times on campus (until we impound them), no way we're going to check every office of every car we ticket... we'd be checking hundreds of offices every day!

Also no way in hell we're checking every office on campus every day, that's literally all we'd ever be doing. There are about 300 buildings on campus, each with dozens to hundreds of offices. On any given day we have 40,000 staff members on campus! Would you expect a city police department to check every house and apartment in a city of 40,000 to make sure everyone's ok?

I think their priorities were just fine at that college. It was a freak situation due to this guy having nobody around to miss and report him missing that this happened. Them's the breaks when you're alone.
