The Sept. 19 article “Half of ’10 Men Joing Fraternities in 2006” mistakenly reported that the Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity had zero pledges as of last Sunday. In fact, tEp had one pledge on Sunday. Also, the article’s subheadline inaccurately reported that “Only Three Upperclassmen Decide to Pledge,” when the number of upperclassman pledges was still being tallied. The article misleadingly referred to a “‘no camping’ rule.” The act of camping was voted out of the recruitment rules, but no rule banning camping actually exists. In addition, this was actually the second year, not the first, without the gag rule, which prohibited fraternity brothers from revealing their affiliation before rush starts.

President Emeritus Charles M. Vest did not receive an honorary degree from MIT as was reported in the Sept. 19 article “Vest Sole Candidate For President,” but was awarded honorary membership by the MIT Alumni Association.

“MIT Museum to Relocate After Planned Renovation” in the Sept. 12 issue misleadingly reported that the MIT Museum plans to move to the Metropolitan Storage Warehouse. In fact, this is only a proposal. Museum Director John R. Durant said that expansion within the museum’s current building or a new building are also being considered. “The one [possible new site] that we’re most attracted to, the one that would hold the greatest promise would be the Metropolitan Storage Warehouse,” Durant said, but added that the museum has not had any conversations with the Warehouse about a relocation.
