[pullquote]It’s a good decision made by the deans and Office of Greek life, because we need to find a way to operate social events in the safest way. Closed parties are a good move in the interim and, once the the review process is finished, it will be better for the campus. Ian Schwartz ’12President of the Interfraternity Council[/pullquote]
On Tuesday, Oct. 11, Director of Greek Life Timothy Dunn sent an e-mail to the campus community announcing an impending review of the college’s current policy regarding social events and alcohol.
Dunn hopes the review process will be finished by the end of fall term but, until it is completed, admission to fraternity and sorority social events will be on an invitation only basis.
The motivation for revising to the college’s policy is reportedly “unruly behavior by students waiting in line” to enter parties. Examples of this behavior include physical fights, public urination and student bombardment into Greek houses.
After two weeks of contemplation, Dunn personally made the decision to send an e-mail announcement to all members of the student body with the intention of keeping the campus updated and reiterating the commitment to student safety.
