I bought dd a house in her college town, she had 2 roommates that covered mortgage, we put the rental income on her tax return, thus - she had enough income to be considered "in-state" and tuition was 70% less than out-of-state tuition with no cost for "room." Sold when she graduated but wish I had kept it. Values skyrocketed but you should consider that once you know where ds is going to school - if only to save on board. Yes, I do the 14 days of "free" rental of my own house as I live in a town that is very desirable for short term rentals at graduation time (local university.) [ Reply | More ]

They can absolutely expel students based on less than a criminal conviction! [ Reply | More ]

Exactly. And there have been no convictions. All of these people are screaming for expulsions and for frat house closures, but none of the alleged criminals has been tried. Guess what? If a rapist is convicted and sentenced, he won't be on a college campus because he'll be in jail. [ Reply | More ]

Only if they want to get sued for defamation, slander, and a slew of other things. No university can expel a student for unsubstantiated rumors. [ Reply | More ]

That's because there's an honor code that students must agree to adhere to. If they violate the honor code, they are expelled. Things that can't be tried in court (like cheating, plagiarizing, etc). I am not defending the rapists or their rape policy. I am just explaining why it is that cheaters can be kicked out so easily. [ Reply | More ]

Disagree. RS is a reputable paper. Some details not material to the story may have been changed to protect people(as in I suspect that Drew and Jackie worked at the library, not as lifequards), but I think the main story is true. [ Reply | More ]

No way. Why use a pseudonym for "Jackie", if she is already so well known on campus that assault victims call her up and approach her after class, and the men who hate her (alleged) fight against rape openly yell insults at her on the street and throw bottles at her in public? It's because she is not that person - she is made up. [ Reply | More ]

You cannot have it both ways. If she wasn't really assaulted, why are people yelling at her? Maybe she doesn't want her name in public for eternity? [ Reply | More ]

This is what I'm saying. "She" doesn't exist. RS went out and interviewed dozens, maybe hundreds, of women on college campuses, gathering stories of assault - some of it may have been true, some of it may have happened at UVA - and then rolled it all into one "person" in order to sell the story big. Without "Jackie", the rest of the article becomes very technical and bogged down in university policy and he-said-she-said and unsubstantiated allegations against Big Evil Frats. [ Reply | More ]

I don't know where you get "offended" from. I'm able to read critically and figure out what's really going on behind an article. I know what's click-bait and what's sensationalism and what's actual investigative reporting. Some people fall for everything they read on the internet; other people know that you can't just blindly accept at face value everything you read, anywhere. [ Reply | More ]

I went to UVA for grad school, and these stories are completely believable to me. I was older and not part of that scene, but I went to a frat party or two and they were really awful. There were a lot of rich entitled brats there who paobably never heard the word "no." [ Reply | More ]

No, the article was fine. I suspect what will make UVA change is when they get hit with a decline of out of students (who pay much higher tuition) who want to go there. Yes, they will always get students, but the ones who have choices will shy away. [ Reply | More ]

My friend (a man) was in a box w Teresa sullivan at Saturday's football game and said she was bad mouthing the article, the writer, the alleged victims, etc. saying it's so hard for UVA to take action bc it's all he said/she said, the alleged victims aren't credible, etc. Ugh.

This. Let's say for a moment that "Jackie's" story is true. She would have been covered in DNA, plus she knew two of her attackers personally. If she had gone to the police that night, or even just to the hospital, evidence would have been gathered and convictions would have been a slam-dunk. But instead, she waited almost a year, and then hemmed and hawed in a dean's office. She is not a credible witness; UVA couldn't use her to fight against rape if they wanted to. [ Reply | More ]
