A photo caption on page 19 of Tuesday’s edition misstated the nature of the incident that led to a two-year alcohol-related sanction for Alpha Tau Omega and went beyond the facts known to The Tech. It was an “unruly” crowd outside a November party, not a “scuffle,” that led to the sanction.

A feature story last Friday [“Mission to the Amazon”] misstated the relationship between a school trip to the Amazon and the academic subject 12.000. The Amazon trip, led by Jeremy W. Boyce G, Professor Rafael L. Bras ’72, Lecturer Ari W. Epstein PhD ’75, and Professor Kip V. Hodges PhD ’82, was part of the Terrascope freshman program. Terrascope, which is run jointly by Civil and Environmental Engineering (Course I) and Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences (Course XII), is a year-long program that also includes classroom subjects 12.000 and 1.016, but the trip itself was not formally part of either subject.
