    i just cannot wrap my head around this. why is the university not being sanctioned for this? if this were my son, i'd be all over the deans office AND going to the press. along with a lawyer.

    I find the oddest thing about that is that the straight student said he didn't want a gay roommate but they gave him one anyway because they didn't want to discriminate against the gay. That's a formula for trouble.

    This seems quite normal and fully in accordance with my school experiences. You have to realize that

    1. Requesting a roommate change was an unreasonable request because it would require that someone in the administration building lift a finger to do something.

    2. The gay kid was fully at fault for bothering someone in the administration building with his problems. Hell, he might have even interrupted a coffee break! Next time, he'll learn to deal with his problems on his own. (e.g. get stuck and quietly crawl off campus to bleed to death.)

    It's all part of the educational process.

    Unless the victim actually did something to start trouble, it was uncalled for and out of line for him to receive that insulting letter. If I were in his position (and I truly had NOT done anything to cause trouble) I would have an attorney write a "$300.00" letter (a stern letter) rebuking the school for their handling of the matter, and I'd insist the letter be made part of my official file - especially if their own disciplinary letter is going to be part of my file. I'd want the attorney's letter there next to it - - - for any future reader - - - so he/she could see what the real story was. (If I didn't have the $300.00 for an attorney letter, I'd carefully craft one myself - with brevity in mind - and say the same things in my defense.

    Not a lawyer here but I don't see that as an actionable, discriminatory, personal attack--not if they can verify that they were told another side of the story--rather, it looks to me like the university is just covering its ass at the expense of a kid getting a letter in his file. Welcome to the corporate world.
