As student representatives, we seek to center student voices in everything we do. When we ran for ASSU Executive President and Vice President last spring, it was with three collective years of experience in working with administrators between the two of us. In so many of our meetings, we saw over and over that most University committees were content to do the bare minimum—if they had students on their committee their input would be considered, and if we were really lucky, the ASSU leadership would also be given an opportunity to provide input. We ran for our ASSU executive positions to counter this practice, and ensure that more student voice is heard than just ours as critical decisions are made. While many committees continue to struggle with this, ResX is one of three committees that’s gone above and beyond any other committees we’ve ever worked before.
After lengthy discussion, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) decided against extending an exception to The Stanford Daily to receive late funding on Wednesday evening.
Monied clusters of Greek organizations, geographically segregated ethnic houses, and nepotistic, thematically-lifeless Row houses plague Stanford’s housing system, bemoan University administrators. Stanford has consequently adopted the belief that a vast overhaul of campus housing is the cure-all for these ills: the University’s ResX Task Force — a branch of Residential Education (ResEd), has recently been discussing what they call “the ideal neighborhood concept.” Substantive details on this proposed housing restructure are scarce. Nonetheless, we believe it would be useful to infer what the consequences of such systematic changes might be.
Stanford’s Structured Liberal Education (SLE) program houses “two to three times” the proportion of international students than does Stanford’s overall population, according to associate director Jeremy Sabol.
In the 2017-2018 academic year, there were 51 instances in which a student drank so much they needed hospitalization — the highest number of medical alcohol transports in the last 12 years.
Campus Planning has informed Columbae that it will paint over a front door mural it had confiscated from the co-op over the summer, Columbae leadership told The Daily.
As of late Monday night, the Theta Delta Chi (TDX) fraternity has gathered over 700 signatures on its campus-wide petition, originally released Sunday evening. The petition opposes to the University’s decision to remove the fraternity’s housing, the first in which consecutive failed conduct reviews — under the “Standards of Excellence” (SOE) evaluation system — directly resulted in the loss of fraternity housing.
The Theta Delta Chi (TDX) fraternity will lose its housing at the end of this school year, after the University found for the fourth year in a row that the group “needs improvements” to meet Stanford’s “Standards of Excellence” (SOE) governing reviews of Greek organizations. The fraternity plans to appeal the decision, and will receive a final outcome from Residential Education (ResEd) by Feb. 1.
