In advance of society tap week, Dean of Student Affiars Marichal Gentry sent out an email yesterday reminding societies and tapees about State Laws and undergraduate regulations regarding hazing, harassment and sexual misconduct, and blindfolding.
He understands that a “tradition for some societies has included blindfolding,” but he’s showing a lack of sensitivity to those undergrads in need of their weekly Thursday night BDSM traditions.
To all you undergrads that do dabble in the occasional weekly role-play, keep your doors locked.
As for professors, and grad students, tie away. Blindfolding seems to only be prohibited for undergrads.
