Baker’s Dozen punished for rush violations

Yale Daily News:

The singing group the Baker’s Dozen has violated regulations governing a cappella rush by allegedly serving alcohol to rushees. The Baker’s Dozen is the only a cappella group to be punished under new rush regulations so far this year, co-chairmen of the Singing Group Council confirmed Monday evening. The group will be forced to miss the Woolsey Hall jam next year and to wait an additional two minutes at the High Street gate before this year’s tap night because they allegedly served alcohol to rushees at a party following the group’s Friday singing dessert.

Dean of Student Affairs Marichal Gentry said his office is not currently involved in the situation. “We only get involved when there’s a dispute with the singing council,” Gentry said.

But Gentry acknowledged that serving alcohol to minors violated both undergraduate regulations and Connecticut state law, and that the Dean’s Office could shut down the Baker’s Dozen if “the group had done something in violation” of those regulations. Stephen Feigenbaum ’11, a member of the Baker’s Dozen, declined comment on behalf of the group. Read more.
