The Monday, February 26, a Student Senate meeting heard remarks from President Nick Arbaugh ’20 regarding the recent Bob Garthwait situation. He wanted the student body to continue to voice their concerns and questions but asks that everyone makes their statements well thought out. He reminded the room  to be kind to one another in times like these, that it is our duty as Gettysburgians to ourselves and to our community. In closing, he said, “We can’t control the past but we can decide how we react and how we change our ways.” Arbaugh’s full remarks as prepared are below:

  1. I find this interesting coming from this particular President who told me in a class that my major was pointless and that there were no reason to have diversity requirements

  2. Apparently, Gettysburg has become a freak show. Slandering a generous alumnus as a Nazi sympathizer because 40 years ago he dressed up like an actor from a show that mocked the Nazis. Now, the idiot senate approved tampons in the men’s bathroom. We need to mock these leftist goofs.
