He didn’t hang out on the floor anymore, and when he did, it was with his friends from the BSA who came by to see him. Most of the guys on the floor stopped talking to him. I decided to have a talk with Andre. I asked him to come to my room and chat. This is where I made my big mistake. Well, actually, I made several big mistakes all in one sitting.

Betsy bought a bunch of beer even though it was a hall program and most students were under 21. And Katie never showed to set up, let alone clean up.
