The result of the attitude and activity of the Sigma Phi Epsilon
Fraternity is shown in that during the first term the Fraternity earned
a 1.1 average and in the second term raised this to a 1.45. It is be-
lieved that this Fraternity has more than met the spirit of the Faculty
ruling governing academic standards and has taken every possible recourse
to improve its status under the ruling. It is the recommendation of Dean
Kirwan, in which I concur wholeheartedly, that although the overeall average
of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity for the past year was 1.27, the Faculty
restore this house to good standing and grant them social privileges for
the present school year.

The motion was made by Dr. Martin and seconded by Dr. Kirwan that since the

fraternity had more than met the Spirit of the faculty ruling governing aca.‘
demic standards, it be restored to good standing and be granted social privileges
for the present academic year. The Faculty approved the motion.

The Faculty adjourned.
