Task Force Editorial Inaccurate

I graduated from MIT in June of 1995. I chose to live in Baker House for all four years of my undergraduate career, and I also chose to be actively involved in a non-housed sorority for all four years of my education. One of the leading reasons for me choosing MIT in the first place was the knowledge that I would be allowed such choices.

Over the past year I have watched the Institute react to the death of Scott S. Krueger '01. I recall how much students drank off campus and more importantly, how much they drank on campus. I ask the administration, in the wake of the decision to eliminate off-campus housing choices to freshman, if it would have forced all freshman to live off-campus had Krueger died of alcohol poisoning in a dormitory instead of off-campus housing.
