Administration vs. Beta Theta Pi

Dean Mike Whaley sent an all campus e-mail this afternoon reminding students that the University is not affiliated with Beta. They list a variety of complaints against the chapter:

“… Throughout the fall semester, we engaged the undergraduate and alumni leadership of Beta as well as a representative from Beta’s national office in an attempt to resolve the behavioral issues and improve the relationship between the organization and Wesleyan.  Unfortunately, Beta has chosen not to enter into an affiliation agreement with the University and to continue to prohibit Public Safety from addressing behavioral and/or safety concerns on its property … we advise all Wesleyan students that they should avoid the residence because we cannot establish the safety of the premises”

Reports of underage drinking, ‘illegal activities,’ hospitalizations, and so on.

“… Consequently, we will be working with City officials to address the safety issues and problematic behavior at the house.”

I wonder what that means?

TL;DR (too long; didn’t read) The administration’s attempt to stop all the shenanigans at Beta is not working. At all.

So… Administration 0: Beta 1?

    The failure to reach an “affiliation agreement” is because that would require the fraternity to house women and non-Betas.

    this is not their true motive, their house is their private property and they are not required to sign it over to the university. therefore, why would they? the agreement would require handing over the deed to the university. what motive is there for that?

    and that property has always been under MPD jurisdiction, nothing has changed.

    Effectively this amounts to Wes legally stating they are not affiliated and have warned students of “unsage” events at Beta. The failure to reach an “affiliation agreement” is because that would require the fraternity to house women and non-Betas. Beta owns the house and they wanted the ability to charge room fees to students and allow Psafe access. Beta 1, Admin 0
