Dear Ms Ruiz,

I regret to write I'm denying your requested postponement of your required seminars.

As I reminded you in our meeting yesterday, you're allowed to remain in the dormitories only on the condition of your attendance. Should you not attend, please vacate your room Monday.

Considering your planned visit to your parents: were this the only incident in your folder I'd agree. However, the number of reports indicate this action's past due. I hope you and your boyfriend will be able to use the airline tickets later.

Incident: Noise?

The RA on duty heard complaints of odd noises coming from Mariana's room. When RA approached door he heard sounds of a dull thumping, 'like a muffled drum' & also what he took to be distressed crying.

Ruiz responded to the knock somewhat dishevelled. She claimed to be fine, that she and her guest were simply having a discussion. Ruiz apologized for behaviour the previous weekend.

RA left, and didn't investigate again despite repeated reports of further noise.



Notes scrawled on folder:




No further violations. Note effectiveness of 'Making Responsible Choices' seminar.
