Rothfeld: Divisive Pledge Gear

(10/30/12 3:00am)

Responses to the College's inept attempts at cracking down on hazing have been manifold, but few have been as well-reasoned and articulate as that of columnist David Brooks. In a recent article, Brooks argued that harsher brands of hazing serve no greater purpose, reminding us that we are not the subordinates of our fellow students and that such hierarchical ideology has no place in a social and civilian context ("Use and Abuse of Hazing Practices," Oct. 24).

Daily Debriefing

(10/30/12 3:00am)

Due to faculty and student discontent, Trinity College has elected to reform its Greek system to require coeducational membership and a minimum GPA, following a near-unanimous vote by its Charter Committee, The Trinity Tripod reported. Greek organizations must begin recruiting coed pledge classes by this spring, and at least 15 percent of members must be of the house's minority gender by the following fall. Membership in these organizations must include even numbers of men and women by October 2016, and pledging periods for new members have been abolished. Due to the Charter Committee's belief that the GPA of the Greek system is lower than the college's average, a GPA of 3.0 or better will be required to rush in the short term, and a GPA of at least 3.2 will be required by fall 2014. Violation of any of these restrictions can result in derecognition of organizations, and students who participate in banned organizations will be subject to separation from the school. Trinity hopes that the reforms will foster inclusivity and equal access to college resources, The Tripod reported.

Good Sam policy does not punish athletes

Although rumors have recently circulated that student-athletes who are Good Sammed can no longer compete with their teams, coaches are not automatically notified if one of their players has been the picked up by Safety and Security under the Good Samaritan policy.
