connection of three
incidents in Zaragon
Daily News Editor
A 31-year-old male graduate
atudent la being investigated for
sexually assaulting three females
in three separate incidents, two
of which occurred in September
2012 and the third this February.
The cases - which caused
unease in the University commu-
nity because of repeated assaults
at Zaragon Place - raises con-
cerns about the ability of police
agencies to investigate sexual
assault amid the confidentiality
of internal University investiga-
tions. At the same time, Universi-
ty investigators are charged with
the difficult responsibility of
maintaining a balance between
survivor rights and community
The second reported incident,

which occurred in September
20i2, was discovered during an
internal University investigation
into another sexual assault alle-
gation. University Police were
informed of the first incident but
were not made of aware of the
second until February - there-
fore, they were unable to consider
the second allegation as evidence
for apotential pattern ofincidents
in September.
The University community
was not notified of the allega-
tions until after a third student
was allegedly sexually assaulted
in the same location in February
and University Police determined
there was apossible threatto stu-
dent safety.
Acrime alert detailingallthree
incidents was sent out the night
of Feb. 27 once University Police
established a pattern from the
information they received.
'As soon as we had the infer-
mation that led usto believe it was
a pattern of behavior that posed a
public safety threat and we could
identify where these incidents
allegedly occurred, we issued a

initiatives a focus
of CSG platforms
Daily StaffReporter
Last year, only one Central
Student Government presi-
dential candidate made entre-
preneurship a major platform
point. Manish Parikh, current-

ly a business senior, became
the first independent candidate
to win the CSG presidency in
years. In this year's election,
candidates are taking notice
and building on the current
administration's entrepreneur-
ial efforts. -
Parikh said the perception
of CSG in 20i1 was that of a
"bureaucratic, slow-moving
machine with a lot of cogs in
the system," so his message of
reform appealed to voters.

"I think entrepreneurship,
and more so the entrepreneur-
ial mindset, was extremely cru-
cial for us in the last election,"
Parikh said.
This year has been marked
with several entrepreneurial
programs and events, includ-
ing the Entrepreneurship Com-
mission, the MHacks student
hackathon and the Month of
"I think (entrepreneurship)
got students on campus really

fired up, that (we) had fresh
thoughts, fresh ideas and that
(we) were willing to flip CSG
around - make it more innova-
tive and focua on (new) projects,"
Parikh said.
Tom Erdmann, an organizer
of MHacks, which took the title
of the nation's largest college
hackathon, said entrepreneur-
