FOXNews.com is the latest to draw scrutiny to Wesleyan University's overbearing treatment of its students with its new policy prohibiting them from "participating in social activities" on the property of private organizations unrecognized by Wesleyan.
Unsurprisingly, the front-page FOXNews.com story by Patrick Manning detects a decidedly sour mood among Wesleyan's student body:
"It feels like you are still living with mom and dad," said Tom Miceli, a junior at the small Middletown, Conn., college.
They say the wording of the policy is unclear, and the college has gone too far under making the new revisions.
"Students want to be treated like they are adults," junior Jeff Tanendaum said.
Miceli, president of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, which is affiliated with the university, said the rules give him anxiety about what the university can do under the new policy.
"It's a slippery slope. If they can pass this, what else can they pass?" he said.
Wesleyan University's student body president, Micah Feiring, said the new revisions were made without any student input.
"The administration is usually very good about working with students," he said, referring to policy revisions. "But this time they did not."
