It's a sad world...

I recently received this message from Dalhousie University Services. It's better that such a warning exist, it is just saddening it has to.


Welcome to Dalhousie! Your time at Dalhousie is an exciting journey of discovery -outstanding academic programs, diverse experiences, new friends and ideas, and personal growth.

There are many helpful services and extracurricular activities available to you such as the Dalhousie Student Union's Frosh Week activities outlined below.

As you participate in social events in town, you and your friends may want to remember, if you decide to drink alcohol:
  • Use your head and always drink responsibly
  • Never drink alone
  • Always protect the people you are with

And please be wary. We have heard that a problematic commercial company will be in Halifax this Frosh Week. They are well known for using alcohol and cheap gifts (often T-shirts and hats) to take advantage of women students. The company's reported practice is to get inebriated students to sign a permission contract that gives the company the right to take images of the students (including nudity) and then to sell the resulting videos commercially. Don't let this happen to you
and your friends.

Have a safe and fun arrival or return to campus and do not hesitate to contact one of the many
Student Services departments if we can be of assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Bonnie Neuman
Vice-President, Student Services

(Of course, if one doesn't voluntarily drug oneself, such a situation is a lot less likely to happen, but still...)
