No, not Weiner. Beta Theta Pi has formally signed Wesleyan’s revised housing policy and will rejoin the university in the fall as an on-campus program house. This concludes a year of particularly icy Beta–administration relations—culminating last February with the announcement of a housing policy widely interpreted as a threat to student liberties. Time, how it flies.
Here’s the announcement in full:
We are pleased to announce that Beta Theta Pi, 184 High Street, has agreed to join Alpha Delta Phi, Delta Kappa Epsilon, and Psi Upsilon as participants in program housing beginning this fall. As such, Beta has been formally recognized by the University.
The agreement, that all of the historic Greek houses have recently signed, clearly outlines expectations for both residents and for University officials.
We are grateful to the students and their alumni leaders for their work on this important issue, and hope that the dialogue and cooperation that has led to this agreement will serve as the foundation for an improved relationship with the Greek houses. We look forward to working with all of these groups (as well as other non-residential Greek organizations) in the coming year.
