To the Members of The College of Wooster Campus:
The safety and security of this campus is what makes it feel like home and gives us a sense of security and protection: Security and Protective Services employees provide 24-hour assistance to us, the Wooster Police patrol the Wooster community, and the lighting around campus provide guidance at night. These lights provide a security of their own, whether they are the street and sidewalks lights or the blue lights that are above the security phones that are used in the case of an emergency. These are necessary pieces of security that most people take for granted, and in some cases are vandalized and stolen.
Some of the vandalism can be attributed to intoxicated students or rowdy members of the Wooster community; however most of the thefts and acts of vandalism go unaccounted for throughout the course of the year. Nevertheless, we, the members of Phi Sigma Alpha, must confess:
Over the past several years, former active members of our fraternity have been involved in the dismantling and theft of several of the blue lights that provide security for this campus. They were taken as trophies and handed down through our fraternity. Although none of the current actives were involved in the theft and dismantling, we are all accountable as an organization for what our members did. To the members of the campus that we may have put in jeopardy as well as every other member that could have been harmed at any time due to our negligence, we the members of the Phi Sigma Alpha Brotherhood would like to sincerely apologize. We hope that by admitting what our members have done and by lending our assistance to other organizations to repair and replace what we have taken, we can take action to create a stronger more unified campus.
Phi Sigma Alpha Fraternity
