IFC loosens Welcome Back Nights restrictions

first_imgAfter the last Interfraternity Council cracked down on safety during the pre-rush period, the new IFC board is moving to relax those regulations.On patrol · Department of Public Safety officers and LAPD officers monitor activities on The Row during last year’s Welcome Back Nights, the period before rush. – Brandon Hui | Daily Trojan During last year’s Welcome Back Nights — the period before rush — IFC banned hard alcohol, common sources of alcohol, such as kegs, and prohibited non-Greeks from attending parties. Though the bans concerning alcohol will remain in place, IFC will not monitor who visits The Row during the pre-rush period.Instead, both Greeks and non-Greeks will be welcomed at Welcome Back Nights. Parker Adams, IFC’s vice president for public relations, said it is extremely difficult to monitor who attends the Welcome Back Nights party.“The main reason [for the change] was that it was very hard to enforce that rule and to even determine who is Greek and not Greek,” Adams said. “It was not feasible to assume that members could discern Greeks from non-Greeks.”Last year’s IFC board had decided to implement the new, stricter rules in hopes of increasing safety after several students were hospitalized during the fall 2008 pre-rush period, according to former IFC president Nick Hamada. The board worked in conjunction with the USC Department of Public Safety to monitor alcohol consumption and compliance with IFC and university policies.Former IFC President Nick Hamada said the board met with DPS and university officials to develop the regulations for last year’s pre-rush.“Above all, it was a concern for student safety and recognizing that pre-rush had developed a culture that wasn’t always safe for students,” Hamada said.Last year’s new measures were aimed not only at increasing safety, but also at preventing chapters from gaining an unfair advantage in the recruitment process.“Chapters were coming back from break and having social events. That’s a part of fraternity life, [but] these types of social events were not supposed to be used for recruiting,” Hamada said.Wednesday marks the beginning of Welcome Back Nights for most fraternities on The Row. Daily Trojan | Ian ElstonJessica LaBarbera, a senior majoring in communication and memory of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, said although she felt the new rules made last year’s parties more subdued than in previous years, they also created a safer atmosphere.“Maybe it wasn’t as fun, but I know it was safer, so that’s a trade-off I’m willing to take,” LaBarbera said. “I felt like people were more in control because there wasn’t as much alcohol around.”DPS Capt. David Carlisle said DPS wants to continue to work with IFC and be proactive in creating safety measures.“DPS has an excellent relationship with the IFC,” he said. “We share the same goals of maintaining a safe environment in which the Greek community can live, work and go to school.”Though the new IFC board intends to continue working to improve safety on The Row, current IFC president Eric Ronan said the board will shift its focus to other issues, including creating scholarship opportunities, enhancing communication and expanding community service.last_img read more

Senate-passed bill on ‘unborn persons’ now cleared for House committee consideration

first_imgDES MOINES — A Senate-passed bill that’s now part of the abortion debate is now eligible for debate in a House committee.The bill would establish a life prison sentence for someone convicted of intentionally or accidentally causing the termination of “an unborn person” against the mother’s wishes. Chuck Hurley, legal counsel for The Family Leader, today urged House members to pass the bill.“We’ve heard opponents say they know this is not an abortion bill…We also know the abortion issue’s not going to go away and the battle comes down to: ‘What is a child, what is an unborn person?’” Hurley asked rhetorically during a House subcommittee hearing. “And so you’re going as far as you can go here.”Daniel Zeno, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa, said the proposal technically does not apply to abortion, but the bill’s senate manager indicated that’s the ultimate goal.“Yes, it’s a small step, but this is a step in a much longer process of getting personhood and banning abortions,” Zeno said.Connie Ryan of the Interfaith Alliance of Iowa said the intent behind the bill is clear.“I know that Iowans are not foolish enough on this day or any other day to not understand that this is fully about abortion,” Ryan said.After a subcommittee meeting early this afternoon, a Democrat voted against the bill and two Republicans, including Representative Steven Holt of Denison, voted for it.“This discussion, I believe, lays bare the untenable position of those who refuse to acknowledge that the entity growing inside a pregnant woman is a human life, a human being, an unborn person,” Holt said.The bill is now eligible for debate in the House Judiciary Committee later this week.last_img read more
