VCU Student Affairs Recommends Permanent Ban For Delta Chi Fraternity Related to Death of Student
The investigation into the death of Adam Oakes
It’s believed by preliminary reports that Adam Oakes died as the result of a hazing incident on the night of February 26th into the morning of the 27th. Adam was found unresponsive in an off-campus home.
Full statement below.
On Monday, May 3, VCU’s Division of Student Affairs initiated disciplinary proceedings against the Delta Chi Fraternity chapter at VCU with a recommendation that the Chapter be permanently removed from VCU if reported allegations result in findings that it is responsible for misconduct.
The process starts with a report and a recommendation to leaders of VCU’s Student Organization Conduct Committee. The report submitted by VCU’s Division of Student Affairs is based on multiple reports and allegations of violations of university policies and directives regarding chapter events, COVID-19 protocols, recruitment activities, alcohol and hazing on February 26 and 27 in the hours before the death of VCU student Adam Oakes.
The next steps include a review of the report by VCU’s Student Organization Conduct Committee and a determination if violations occurred and, if so, the appropriate sanctions. VCU expects the process to be complete this summer.
The Richmond Police Department investigation continues into Adam’s death. The ongoing police investigation, and any subsequent VCU Student Code of Conduct investigation, may identify additional information or violations of university policy. If so, the initiating report against Delta Chi, and recommendations, maybe updated accordingly
3rd Street Diner Sold
The exact plans for the space are unknown at this time but it supposedly will be a new restaurant.
The iconic corner cafe’s sale was announced yesterday.
Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer is pleased to announce the sale of the former 3rd Street Diner property located at 218 East Main Street in the City of Richmond, Virginia.
Ya Hua Zheng & Jianwei Tang purchased the 3,928 square foot retail building from 3rd Street LLC for $550,000 and will operate as a new restaurant.
Reilly Marchant of Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer handled the sale negotiations on behalf of the seller.
I’ll confess to having never set foot inside the diner but I’ll be bummed to see the neon go away if they go down that path.
Richmond BizSense Reporting a Brewer’s Cafe Move and Juice Bar Plans
Lovers of Brewer’s Cafe don’t panic. They’re just moving a block or so over to Hull Street.
Richmond BizSense has the news of a move and a spinoff. Great to see Brewer’s growing.
Brewer is relocating his Brewer’s Cafe, which has operated since 2015 at the corner of Bainbridge and 12th streets, to a new space at 1012 Hull St.
The new cafe will be similar to the current concept, but will also feature a full bar and incorporate menu items from Brewer’s Waffles & Milkshakes, which permanently closed in February at 1309 and 1311 Hull St.
“We have had a need to expand Brewer’s Cafe for probably about two years now and we just thought this was the best opportunity to do so,” Brewer said, adding that the new Hull Street space is 3,300 square feet, an increase from 670 square feet on Bainbridge.
He’s also not backing away from Bainbridge. He plans to continue the lease on the original Brewer’s Cafe storefront after it relocates, and open a juice-bar concept built around the line of cold-pressed juices he launched last year. Brewer hasn’t settled on a name for the spin-off juice bar.
