New Blood

Dr. Raphael Moffett, pictured at right on a recent visit, joins Trinity University as the new Director of Campus & Community Involvement. Dr. Moffett most recently served in a similar position (Director of Student Life) at Morehouse in Atlanta. He brings with him tremendous experience in student activities, Greek life, multi-cultural issues, and community service. Despite his love for the Los Angeles Lakers, we hope the community will welcome him with open arms.

Paul Chapa has been named the new Director of Campus Security. Chief Chapa has served as the assistant director of the campus police at Texas State for seven years following 11 years on the St. Mary's University police force as a field sergeant. He has received numerous awards for crime prevention and is completing his master's degree in Organizational Leadership.

Congratulations to new CCI staff. I was thinking as to why Trinity does not allow Greek houses on campus. Several other colleges do. Aren't many students missing out on this Greek life? The argument could be that students are free to have this experience off-campus. But how about those students, including me who do not have their own cars?
Wouldn't having Greek houses on campus control drunk-driving or other prevent fatal accidents?

The only thing that prevents drunk driving is... sober driving. Plenty of schools with Greek houses have drunk driving issues. At TU, with mostly all locals, there are no national organizations or foundations to pay for and support Greek houses. It would be a really expensive venture. Additionally, there is a lot of legal liability that comes with Greek houses and they often become bastians of underage drinking with many sets of health and safety issues. It could be neat to have them - it seems very collegiate - but I think there are many complicating factors.
