of Student Conduct Resolution assis-
tant resolution coordinator Gwen
Hulswit said.
A student's first questionable
action will not be sanctioned under
the Code, but "if they have a second
violation with alcohol, they will be
charged under Section F," Hulswit
Section F of the Code cites the
behaviors that contradict the values for
the University community to be: "ille-
gally possessing, using, distributing,
manufacturing or selling alcohol or
other drugs."
But with the correct documentation
saying the student has successfully
fought the ticket in court, the letter can
be appealed and removed from the stu-
dent's record, Hulswit said.
The removal of the letter will
make the student's next violation the
first violation on record with the
Without the removal of the letter,
"additional or subsequent allegations
will be charged under the Code,"
Hulswit said.
Second violation consequences may
include meeting with a resolutions
Sean McCabe, OSCR director, said
OSCR sends these letters to all students
who receive alcohol and drug viola-
The letters are signed by McCabe.
In 1997, one student challenged the
letter but was unable to provide the
appropriate documentation to appeal
the letter.
In 1996, out of three students who
appealed, only one could provide the
documents and the letter was dropped.
McCabe said the University does
not send letters to parents.
Changes in the Higher Education
Act could allow universities to notify
parents of any student who is involved
in drug- or alcohol-related incidents.
The changes are being reviewed by the
General Council's Office.
AAPD furnishes the Department of
Public Safety with the names of stu-
dents with alcohol violations, and DPS
relays these names to the University.
"If we know it is a University stu-
dent, we make a copy of the complaint
and send it to DPS," said AAPD Sgt.

Cory, an LSA first-year student who
did not want her last name used, said
she received a letter from the University
about a month and a half after she
received her MIP

She said she did not think the
University should be concerned with
her ticket, especially since it did not
come from DPS. But she said the threat
of expulsion shook her up.
A letter informing students about
the Code, signed by Vice President for
Student Affairs Maureen Hartford, went
out to all University students this past
Hartford said the letters received by
students with ticketed violations and
those received by all students do not
have the same implications.
"There is a letter of warning that
goes out to students who receive a vio-
lation if it is their first violation,"
Hartford said.
Both letters are required to be seni
by the Drug Free Schools and
Campuses Act, which also requires a
similar letter to be sent to faculty and
staff members.
LSA senior David Lanxner and his
housemates received the generic letter
from Hartford, but mistook it for a

Lanxner said Hartford's letter,

about one week after the incident,
