Article "WC Senate Votes Salaries, Eliminates Ratting Program"

Description

In 1970, the Westhampton College Senate voted to end the ratting program. The Senate committee had conducted a study of the ratting program that found that students, faculty, and alumni favored an end to ratting. They proposed that ratting may be replaced with some type of service project for freshman. The vice president of Westhampton College was quoted as saying "'Ratting was forcing unity on freshman.'"
