Date rape column angers AU students

The column, written by Alex Knepper, a sophomore political science major, states that a woman who attends a fraternity party, drinks more than five glasses of alcohol and follows a guy to his room is indicating that she is willing to have sex and should not "cry date rape" the next morning.

As this matter is largely a mistake made by the editors, I am providing their names. Hopefully they are added to this story.
