The alleged drugging of several Stanford students by a non-Stanford student at the Sigma Chi fraternity house in January has motivated some Row houses to institute new practices to prevent future drugging incidents. Others, however, have not made such changes.
A Slavianskii Dom staff member was fired and the house’s resident assistant (RA) driven to resignation last week, following fallout from a drug-centered event hosted at the house.
As over 1,000 prospective freshmen (ProFros) converged on campus last weekend for Admit Weekend 2012, Stanford’s normal, unofficially liberal alcohol rules were replaced by a zero-tolerance policy on the consumption of alcohol. The more stringent regime is implemented across campus for the annual event, even in residences not hosting ProFros.
