  • I don't know Mike Raters, but he had big shoes to fill if he followed Norman Moore.

    As a Wabash Man chaos and disarray at DePauw are not unwelcome things. But obviously, the inmates are running the asylum over there. It was all about him trying to get a handle on an out-of-control operating budget that he inherited from a career-climber. My sense is the racial thing was a hoax; not that there aren't a sufficient number of morons out and about, just that these incidents happen with some frequency on today's campus since race and gender are all that seem to matter. When you hear no more about them, consider them hoaxes, because naming the real perp hurts the cause. And further, I am a regular at the Nature Park, have been for 10 years. I've seen many rock-messages over the years, and never once was one done by townies. It's a DPU student thing. Bottom line--Dr. McCoy may have done what was best for him (why put up with a bunch of spoiled, pampered, barely-worked faculty) but long-term, it's unhealthy for the institution.

  • I agree,McCoy was doing a good job and improving relations with town,more DPU kids were volunteering . He did not have enough time you cannot fix a crumbling institution in a day. Someone needs to fix the discipline there.when drugs are fine,booze is passed out by parents and destroying property is the norm and it gets replaced without consequence kids have no respect for anyone or anything.there are some very good kids that are there for education and don’t deserve the disrespect that goes on and earns them all a bad reputation. I wish Depauw would go back in time the kids were held accountable and their morals kept them on campus,not their money.
