Clear and convincing referendum passes with flying colors

As expected, the referendum on changing the Student Code of Conduct policy from “more likely than not” to “clear and convincing” has passed with an overwhelming majority. The total number of students supporting the measure was 2,507, with only 93 opposed. In total number of votes cast in the election was 2,629, which is more than the previous referendum on the SAFE reform from last December, in which 2,446 votes were cast.

The referendum is non-binding, and the final decision still rests with Vice President of Student Affairs Todd Olson. Olson has previously said that he will not make a decision until the conclusion of an outside audit of the Office of Student Affairs is complete.

The audit was conducted by administrators from a university that has the clear and convincing standard and one that does not. The referendum is intended to show Olson and the administration the overwhelming support the student body has towards changing the Student Code of Conduct.

  1. I’m a proud Georgetown Alum, but I can honestly say after 4 years of college and many more of continuing interaction with the community that this is completely unjustified. Whether it is the trash and garbage littering the street on sunday morning, or the drunken bro singing a song about how much he hates f*ggots on a Tuesday night, to the significant amount of property damage I’ve had to endure at the hands of students, all these point to the fact that the University is already far too tolerant of students complete disregard for others. You folks are the reason people around here cannot have nice things, so why should anyone do nice things for you?

  2. “I cant have nice things”, lol, haha. But really now, Jacob your ignorant as balls.

    In all seriousness do you think this will affect toddactyle at all?
