Wash. U. allows fraternities to be active on campus, allows them to host parties, allows them to continue to operate despite all of the harm. If the University chooses to allow these activities, it is their responsibility to make them safe for students.
Unfortunately, while progress has been made since the organization’s founding, there are still measures that need to be taken to strengthen our Title IX processes. Now is a time for reflection about both where progress has been made in the last 12 months and where improvement is still necessary.
A Mallinckrodt Center Subway employee says a four-minute-late order and payment dispute led to a customer throwing his unopened beverage at her shoulder. The Washington University Police Department is continuing to investigate the alleged altercation between a campus employee and Subway cashier over an order.

A female graduate student was found physically beaten in the basement laundry room of her off-campus apartment building in the early afternoon on Monday, Dec. 21.
