Residential Education (ResEd) officials met with leaders in the Greek community last week to discuss the dozens of alcohol-related incidents that occurred during the new member education period, along with steps fraternities and sororities may take to alter the culture of bid week in the future.
The Office of Residential Education (ResEd) has implemented changes to the financial policies for student-managed Row houses over the recent months, following the identification of several “compliance issues” during a general review process, according to administrators.
Suites residents reached an agreement with the University that they will be allowed to manage their own dining areas and chefs for the upcoming academic year, ending a months-long conflict between Suites Dining, formally known as the Governor’s Corner Dining Societies and Residential Education (ResEd), according to Nate Boswell, associate dean of Residential Education, in an email to The Daily.
The University is soliciting contractors to take control over the management of Governor’s Corner Dining Society, also known as the Suites eating clubs. According to Suites eating club chief executive Morgan Priestley, Student Organized Services (SOS), which also manages Row chefs and trains some self-op staff, will receive the contract.
According to several financial managers, Row residents are no longer refunded their houses’ unspent social and board dues. A changed Residential Education policy requires that houses deposit their budget surpluses in restricted-use accounts called “Capital Reserve Funds” (CRF).
Campus officials have put housed fraternity Kappa Sigma on provisional alcohol and party suspension for conduct and possible policy violations during New Student Orientation, according to Nate Boswell, associate director of Residential Education (ResEd) on the Row.
