Dean Asks for No Participation in State Patty’s
Our tip box is blowing up with copies of an email sent to College of Engineering students by Dean David Wormley in which he asks them to not participate in State Patty’s Day festivities. Here’s the full text:
Dear College of Engineering students:
The College of Engineering has a history of having students who are engaged in student life, involved in humanitarian activities, and have contributed to the success of significant activities that have demonstrated social responsibility and benefited others, such as the recent THON event. Our College has faith and trust in you to extend your leadership in, and commitment to the community by declining to participate in State Patty’s Day activities because of the focus on alcohol abuse. We ask that you use your good judgment and demonstrate your leadership by declining to participate in events such as State Patty’s Day and encourage your friends to do the same.
With best wishes for every success this semester,
I suspect that this may just be the first of more than few emails of a similar nature… it seems the pendulum has begun to swing the other way.
