So Much for Support

"The only action has been that we're providing whatever support we can," said Shaun Meredith G, president of Sigma Phi Epsilon Alumni Board, ("Sig Ep Suspended by National After Road Trip Keg Incident," Dec. 1).

Meredith gave the undergraduates nine days to find new housing. This happened during a period most of them would have preferred to spend studying for their exams. This does not sounds like support to me. It sounds like hazing.

Thinking that I might have made a mistake, I turned to Webster. I received the following definition: "To endure bravely or quietly: bear."

My re-evaluation is that Meredith meant to state that the undergraduates are "supporting" any action the Sig Ep Alumni Board takes; they are "enduring [it] bravely and quietly."
