Tell us, how did the body cast its vote; did other students put a pencil in its hand and make it mark an "X" on the ballot?

Why wouldn't the student body approve a "less severe, more friendly policy" - The majority of today's kids are not held accountable for their actions - it's always someone's or something's fault - never their own actions. So much for integrity and living up to something bigger than the student and morally guiding. At one time - a UVA student's check was accepted everywhere.....now I wouldn't trust them to walk my dog.

Will students who have been expelled previous to this vote be allowed back on campus to finish out their UVA degree?

So it is ok to lie and cheat, as long as you come clean after the fact? That's poor. W&L has it right. One sanction for violations. Their honor system works, and always has. UVA just made a big mistake.
