An Emory University fraternity faces disciplinary measures after putting up a Christmas wreath on its front door.
Alpha Tau Omega received notification of its “violation” two weeks ago via an email from Assistant Director of Sorority and Fraternity Life Josh Gamse.
Gamse’s message noted the wreath was ATO’s second housing offense, and as such an “incident report” was sent to the Office of Student Conduct.
According to current Emory U. policy, “Exterior holiday decorations must not be installed or removed by students.” But ATO’s Davis Van Inwegen told Campus Reform this policy is new and that the fraternity “was not sufficiently informed” about it.
He said the first of ATO’s two “offenses” likely was the “inflatable polar bears” put up on a balcony around Thanksgiving.
