Make NUS management answer for improper activities

I was appalled to hear of yet another incident of inappropriate orientation activities by National University of Singapore (NUS) students (NUS probing alleged stripping at beach game; June 21).

Every time this happens, the university will say it does not condone any behaviour or activity that denigrates the dignity of individuals.

The student leaders involved are warned, but the lessons are lost when a new batch of student organisers come in the following year.

Such incidents continue to happen, and are going from bad to worse. We need to put a stop to this before any student gets hurt.

The problem may have to do with the culture at the university.

It is overdue for the Ministry of Education to hold the senior management of NUS responsible and to stop all such orientation activities going forward.
