FRATERNITY FAILS: THE YEAR'S WORST BRO MOMENTS "USC apologizes for any offense or discomfort caused by optional questions included as part of a mandatory on-line training for students on sexual consent, misconduct and other important issues," Senior Vice President for Administration Todd Dickey said in a statement to the Daily News.
"These questions have been removed from our online-training module," he said.
Ellenhorn called the original survey "bizarre" and said he was worried about its confidentiality. But asking about my sexual history made me uncomfortable," he said.
That's when the students called campus security guards and the couple were caught,' he added.He said he initially posted the candid snaps on a private Photobucket account that required a password to access so he could share it with college friends.But he claimed another student copied the pics and sent them around other freely accessible websites.'There was a girl on our floor and apparently there was a girl who had been on higher floors and she told her about it."All colleges and universities are required by law to provide such training, and our training was a standardized module being used by hundreds of colleges and universities across the country," he said.The interactive course is something all students must complete by February in order to register for spring courses, according to a prior email sent to Ellenhorn and shared with The News.The USC email, first reported by Campus Reform.org, said the survey was needed to keep the campus in compliance with the federal Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.
