At the beginning of winter semes-
ter, the Hall Council sent an e-mail
apologizing to all South Quad resi-
dents, and to SAPAC.
University Housing spokesman
Peter Logan said in a statement
yesterday that University Housing
doesn't condone the T-shirts.
"University Housing considers
the South Quad t-shirt message
inappropriate and unsettling," he
makes too many demands on me."
Antonucci said one reason for
higher negativity in younger rela-
tionships might be that younger
individuals are more expressive
and intense in their relation-
"Younger people are more
engaged in the discovery of life,"
she said. "So they react with more
intensity, and that intensity is both
said. "The message is contraryto our
mission and values for developing
inclusive and respectful communi-
ties within University residences."
LSA sophomore Richard Fernan-
dez, a member of the Hall Council,
said the Council didn't know how
many T-shirts were printed or sold,
but said they cost about $3 each to
The South Quad Hall Coun-
cil hosted a forum Monday night
to address concerns about the T-

LSA junior Heather Studer, who
got married March of last year, said
that being in college plays a role in
the way students view romantic

long term," she said. "Some people
would rather work on their school
career and may not necessarily put
their relationship with a person first."
with what took place, though.
LSA and School of Education
junior Erika McCollum, who works
for University Housing and is a
member of SAPAC and the F-word,
said she was just as upset about the
forum as she was the T-shirts them-
selves, because the event didn't
focus on the T-shirts.
"I actually felt less safe walking
out of the forum than I did walk-
ing in to it," she said. "It's really
upsetting to me that my employer
would put this shirt on and then
allow students who put the shirts on
to maintain this power within the
The study found that contrary to
romantic relationships, friendships
improved over time. Older people,
though, still reported fewer nega-

LSA junior Amanda Grigg, a
member of the F-word's governing
"The fact that the forum was
about hip hop was scapegoating and
almost racist," she said. "The forum
blamed hip hop for the fact that peo-
ple feel unsafe, when the problem
was that the Hall Council members
allowed these shirts to go through."
The South Quad Hall Council
said it a written statement yesterday
that it regretted for its decision to
print the T-shirts.
could lead to more clashes between
"People do focus on the number
of friends as opposed to the quality,"
she said. "People want to say, 'I have
500 friends,' so you get a circle of
friends that aren't so like-minded."

"Our decision to include the text
was wrong, and, for this reason,
we stopped sales a week after they
began and have not sold one since,"
the statement read.
Grigg said she didn't think halt-

she doesn't understand the reason
for the outcry.
"I don't know what the brouhaha
is about," she said. "I've heard that
the song is degrading, but I would
assume there were women on the
committee who voted to approve
the T-shirts. Maybe this is a reflec-

Grigg said the shirt's message
might have garnered more criticism
if it hadbeen slightly more overt.
"If the shirt said 'Rape that
