A policy, listed on page C. 19 in the A&M System Administrative Policy and Reporting Manual, states: “It is necessary to regulate activities of organizations and individuals de siring to solicit donations, or sell or promote products and services di rectly with students, employees, and visitors.” The policy also says, “Orga nizations and individuals desiring to engage in such solicitations and sales shall be required to obtain written permission prior to beginning their activity.” According to the policy, an indi vidual wishing to sell a service on System property must get permis sion from the A&M Concessions Committee. However, an official with the concessions committee said such sales normally are restricted to recognized student organizations. The official said Varvel did not get permission from the concessions office, either as an individual or un der an organization’s name. The of fice requires that the individual and the organization be listed when per mission is granted. Jerry Cain, A&M associate gen eral counsel, said the University of fers limited use of its property for commercial purposes. “For the most part,” Cain said, “we are closed to commercial ven tures. We don’t even allow solicita tions in dorms.” The former Varvel employee who requested anonymity said he re cently quit working for Varvel after discovering the possible violation of System policy. The former employee said he was teaching classes of about 10 to 12 students for Varvel in the Blocker Building, but that Varvel re served the rooms under the name of a fraternity. “He moves from classroom to classroom just to stay ahead of the people in scheduling,” the source said. “They’re (Blocker Building) baffled with the fact that he’s using the fraternity’s name.” What he’s doing is profitable, said the source, who also said he believes Varvel is “grossing somewhere be tween $3,000 and $4,000 per week.” The employee said he also would be “the first to say that he’s just about the best chemistry tutor in the school. I took his session and made an easy ‘A.’ ” Section II, Paragraph 65 (1) of the 1986-1987 Texas A&M University Regulations dictates the policy for using University facilities. T he regulation says that before an individual or group can schedule on- campus meeting spaces, the meeting must involve at least one of the fol lowing: • Faculty and staff groups offi cially sanctioned by the appropriate vice presidents; • Student organizations officially recognized by the vice president for student services through the direc tor of student activities; • Activities of the Association of Former Students sanctioned by the Office of the President of the Uni versity; • Other University-sponsored ac tivities when approved by the appro priate vice president. The Media Center is in charge of reserving rooms in the Blocker Building. A Media Center employee said Varvel’s name was listed several times in the scheduling book under the name of a fraternity. The em ployee referred to the fraternity as “ATO.” However, Chuck Collins, president of Alpha Tau Omega, said Varvel has no connection with that fraternity. In a recent interview, the Media Center employee said Varvel had been told he no longer could reserve classrooms in the Blocker Building because of the illegitimate fraternity name. T he Media Center employee said the center checked into the le gitimacy of the fraternity’s name af ter being questioned by The Battal ion. A staff member in charge of scheduling in the O&M Building confirmed that Varvel’s name also was listed in its books supposedly un der the name of a fraternal organi zation — Alpha Tau Theta. How ever, no organization with that name could be located, and a spokesman in the A&M Student Activities Office could not confirm the name of such a Greek organization. T he staff member said Varvel had reserved two rooms in the building — each with a capacity of about 50 people — for the whole semester, but couldn’t confirm whether he was holding tutoring sessions onjfl lar basis.
