This is all dandy and fine; the vice president of student affairs is reaching out to us to address to something that he is very concerned about. And then he sends this email to our parents:
“Dear Wesleyan Parent or Guardian,
We need your help. I am forwarding to you the message (below) that I sent to all students yesterday. The so-called “Tour de Franzia” has surfaced at Wesleyan in recent years and it has been fraught with problems. It has been impossible for us to identify the students who organize the event because it is publicized and promoted via an anonymous Facebook account. We need your help in talking with your student about the very real dangers associated with the event. I hope you will help us to discourage participation in this dangerous activity.
Dean Mike Whaley”
