The University of Texas Board of Regents approved the university system’s largely restrictive campus-carry rules Wednesday, striking down only one controversial provision.

 At UT-Austin, professors will be able to prohibit guns in their individual offices; the school is the only public university in the state to adopt this rule. The board of regents won’t, however, move forward with a rule that would have banned gun carriers from having any chambered rounds in their semiautomatic handguns anywhere on campus. UT-Austin President Gregory Fenves argued that keeping the chambered rounds out of guns would be safer, guarding against accidental discharges — but the board apparently didn’t buy it.

The no-chambered-rounds ban would have forced gun carriers to manually cock pistols before firing.

His guilty plea arrived just as another teacher nearby was busted for sex assault. Westword has the story.

At the end of a semester-long study-abroad program in Genoa, Italy, in December 2014, a group of architecture students from Florida International University went out for a celebratory dinner. After the meal, many students and a handful of faculty members grabbed drinks at a local bar. At 2 a.m., three of the students were ready to leave.

According to one of those students, Adam Drisin, then FIU’s senior associate dean of architecture, asked if the students could walk him back to his apartment. Inside, Drisin offered the students some Baileys liqueur, which they all drank.
