Refugees must be involved in their paths to citizenship, speaker says

By Jimmy Young Collegian Reporter Societies can help refugees become citizens if they are aware of the plights they face, Clemson University professor Todd May said Thursday. Speaking in front of mostly students in the North Court Reception Room, May said that while it was easier for refugees to remain "in the cracks" of a society and not assert themselves, those that did demand rights were often rewarded with citizenship. May described the plight of approximately 1,000 Algerian refugees in Canada who fled their native land because of a civil war ravaging the nation.

E-mail sender sanctioned

The University Hearing Board has disciplined Kappa Sigma's former recruitment chairman for the sexually explicit e-mail that circulated on campus recently, handing down sanctions that school policy mandates cannot be disclosed publicly. The student has not been suspended, as was originally recommended by the dean of Richmond College, but revealing the sanctions would violate the board's hearing policies, a top university official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. At every board hearing, the chairperson reads a statement from a handbook that states that all people who are present -- including the student being sanctioned -- are to hold the details, outcomes and sanctions of the hearing confidential, the official said. Everyone involved honored the board's policies by not commenting to The Collegian about the details of the hearing, held on Oct.
