Off-campus jurisdiction good for student safety

The recent branding incident involving Kappa Sigma members highlights an important issue beyond the obvious question of why anybody would do that. The incident has also led to discussion about whether the university has, or should have, the right to investigate situations like this that occur among its students while they are off campus.

This year marks the first time in the university's history that all students living on campus won't have to pay every time they wash a load of laundry.



After years of having to wait until you could scrape together $2 in quarters to wash and dry one load of laundry or having to add to a growing list of send-home charges, campus residents can now do their laundry free of charge at a time that is most convenient for them.
