As president, Seid dealt with the controversy around the traditional song From Rugby Road to Vinegar Hill stemming from its inclusion in a Rolling Stone article about an alleged gang rape at Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house at the University of Virginia. Seid announced that the Glee Club would retire the song from performance for at least the remainder of the Glee Club 2014-2015 season and potentially the Glee Club 2015-2016 season; he later clarified that a vote of the membership would be called to confirm a permanent ban on performances of the song.
