Students Should Stay Off The Green Building Roof

Students Should Stay Off The Green Building Roof

The brothers and pledges of the Kappa Sigma fraternity are writing to inform the MIT community of an extraordinarily serious problem plaguing undergraduate life at MIT. This is the violation of the MIT policy unauthorized student access to the roof of the Green Building (Building 54).

While hacking is a tradition beloved by undergraduates, a link to those who have come before us, and is advertised in our campus literature and such books as Up The Infinite Corridor, we must not abuse this privilege. Certain members of Kappa Sigma have been caught near and on the roof of the building during the fall term, and were fined severely, as well as sentenced to a significant amount of MIT service.

Hence we strongly urge students not to attempt to gain access to the roof of the Green Building. The motion detectors will ensure that they get caught. We further suggest that they not "hack" at all. While some may feel hacking is no big deal, the Campus Police and the MIT administration do. Those caught hacking will be fined an amount comparable to being sentenced to a significant misdemeanor by the city of Cambridge.
