University of Conneticut cancels party weekend

The University of Connecticut is
canceling its usual pre-exam party
weekend in April in response to a trag-
edy chat occurred last year, accord-
ing to a Jan. 21 article in The Boston
During last year's partying, called
Spring Weekend, 84 people were
arrested and one student died, accord-
ing to the article. Jafar Karzoun, a
junior at the university at the time,
was punched by a non-student and
died one week later.
Spring Weekend began in the 1960s
and has been carried on each year as a
series of parties at off-campus apart-
ments and a school parking lot. About
15S000 people have gathered for the
events in recentcyears, according to the
As a result of last year's events,

the University formed a task force
to explore the university's options
regarding Spring Weekend. The task
force found that university-sponsored
events - meant to encourage activi-
ties besides off-campus partying -
didn't curb such behavior, according
to The Boston Globe.
Additionally, because most of the
people arrested last year weren't stu-
dents affiliated with the University of
Connecticut, visitors will not be per-
mitted in the dorms that weekend, the
article states. University of Connecti-
cut President Philip Austin consented
the new protocol designed by the task
force, accordingcto the Boston Globe.
The task force is also calling on
students this year to ban off-campus
parties during Spring Weekend to pay
respect to Karzoun, the article states.

Emory University's Board of Trust-
ees has adopted a resolution acknowl-
edging the university's involvement
with slavery during the 19th century,
according to a Jan. 20 article in the
Emory Wheel article.
According to the Emory Wheel,
the resolution states that Emory
"regrets both this undeniable wrong
and the University's decades of delay
in acknowledging slavery's harmful
In addition to the university's
upcoming 175th anniversary, the
Wheel reported that another reason
Emory's trustees decided to pass the
resolution is because Emory is hosting
a national conference on the history of

slavery in early February.

Increasing tuition rates motivated
University of Colorado sophomore
Nic Eamos to pay his spring semester
tuition, totaling more than $14,300, in
mostly $1 bills, according to a Jan. 15
article in The New York Times.
"...it's just an absurd amount of
money,' Eamos told The New York
Times. "I wanted to give the school a
different way to look at tuition."
In order to acquire what turned
out to be a 33-pound bag full of cash,
Eamos had to travel to several differ-
ent banks over a span of two days, the
article states.
