TDX Sanctions Reduced

The sanctions imposed on TDX by Dean Johnson have been slightly reduced after a lengthy series of disciplinary procedures. You can read all about it in Charlotte’s 14-page decision — a legalistic missive that took way too many people much too much time to draft, but I guess that they have little else to do in their overpaid time.

Of greater interest is the letter’s summary of the initial charges against TDX (some were determined to be groundless or unprovable for lack of evidence) . If these “violations” are the kind of thing that can land Greek houses in trouble, then it is clear the administration is on a zero-tolerance warpath against the frats. Can any house on campus not have been guilty of at least of few of these infractions within the last few weeks?

What are the houses going to be charged with next? Jaywalking? Bringing books back late to Baker? Having a College chair in a private room?

Addendum: A great many TDX alumni wrote to Phil Hanlon to protest the capricious prosecution of their fraternity. Phil responded to each of them with the same content-free letter:
