In the past two sessions of the Goucher College Student Assembly, the group discussed the Sexual Misconduct Policy workgroup’s proposed changes to the policy and talked about changing the course add/drop deadline.
Two representatives from the sexual misconduct policy workgroup, joined by Roshelle Kades, the health and wellness coordinator, presented their proposed changes at the Nov. 17 meeting. The most notable changes are the revamping of the complaint process and the creation of new sentencing guidelines when students are found guilty of certain violations. The workgroup also added two sections to the policy: dating violence and stalking.

Displaced T residents reflect: another look at the flooding in Welsh Hall

Samuel Kessler

Christopher Riley
Associate Editor

In the last issue of The Quindecim, we published an article in the opinion section expressing our feelings regarding the flooding in Welsh Hall. We would like to individually express our thoughts and concerns.
Christopher Riley: I would like to take this opportunity to explain my reasons for publishing the article. In the midst of editing articles for The Quindecim, we were informed of the flooding. As residents of the T, we were both immensely frustrated. In a rage, we wrote this opinion piece. The article was purely our opinion of the situation; it was not intended as a news piece. Though we may have come off strong in our opinions of the matter, we were not in anyway out to shun or  degrade any member of the Goucher community. I believe in the Goucher community, which is why I have worked over the last three years to support and thrive. I don’t tolerate blatant discrimination or bullying; with that said, I admit that my comment stating the student “lacked common sense” was harsh. If I caused  emotional harm or distress, this was not my intention.

In response to “Displaced T residents rant” from issue one

Dear Mr. Kessler and Mr.Riley,

We are writing in response to your article regarding the flooding of the T. We do not agree with your derogatory language towards the student who caused the incident, nor do we think that your reporting on the subject is anything more than shallow. To begin, characterizing the student as a “reprehensible human being” conflates one incident, which even you stated was an accident, as being representative of this person as a whole. This description is simply not accurate.
