A Talk With Dean Don
Because of the recent changes in interhouse
visitation pohcy and because of the memorandum
left in each student’s mailbox on Feb. 3 informing
students that their dorms had been “closed for the
remainder of the semester,” and that “room
searches” were to be made at early hours of the
morning, the Clarion saw the need to straighten out
a few rumors and get comprehensive facts
regarding these issues. The following is the text of
an interview with Dean of Student Affairs Don
Scarborough regarding the recent problems and
Q. Many students on campus have let it be known that
they feel they are not being treated as adults. What is
your view on this widespread opinion?
A. “Lots of students felt that we were not treating
them as responsible adults. May I question our
ability to accept adult responsibility? Recently, I
have had to deal with:
1. Students steaUng milk crates from area
2. Setting down guidelines for snowballing so that
buildings are not destroyed and students are not
3. Students throwing trash and tobacco juice out
of residence hall windows.
4. Students rolling the residence halls, lobbies,
and campus with toilet paper.
5. Roommates and suitemates that cannot
respect one another’s property.
“I do realize that the majority of our student
body are truly responsible adults, but there are
incidents when I must question where the
responsible adults are hiding."
“The new parietal guidelines for supervised
visitation is an attempt to give each student, floor,
and residence hall responsibility for their own
area. The adults among us will exercise that
responsibility. Those unable to accept it will be the
ones that will be suspended and then cry that they
have not been treated as adults.
Behind Closed Doors.
Q. Couldn’t part B of the memo left in all students'
mail boxes on February 3 be considered illegal because
of Senate Bill 621, Amended General Statute 14-286
which stales in part: “It shall be unlawful for any
person or persons to wantonly and willfully...pull the
slide arm or lever of any station or signal box of any
fire alarm system, except in case of fire?
A. “We can conduct fire drills in each of our
residence halls. The regulations also require that
we inspect the entire building so that we can
determine if in fact the entire building has been
Q. When you ring the bells to check the rooms, does
everyone have to leave the building?
A. “Yes, because we have to give them (the fire
department) a log on how fast it takes them to
leave the building”.
