    Well-written story. I appreciate Elder’s courage and service. I’m glad the university has come a long way in its treatment of such matters.

    I was tangentially involved in this and was so proud of D-Ray and the other students who spoke out about the party. Tensions on campus were high for some time and we have not had another such incident since. I hope we never have to go through this again.

    It is pretty sad if this is what you think “put Tarleton in the map.” There are countless accomplishments earned by the students and faculty of this university that deserve recognition.

    Read a little more carefully. There’s a difference between “map” and “headlines.”

    Talk about a blast from the past. I’m so glad we took a stand and hopefully made a difference. I had a lot of hate for Tarleton at that time and left shortly after. I put it behind me and finally finished my last semester at Tarleton and graduated. Thanks for the article and everything in the article was 100% true.
