The comments on the article point to a violation of the "loss prevention" policy, which says no kegs, drugs, "demeaning" acts, weapons, hazing, or other forms of fun allowed.

The issue here is not whether they broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with their female party guests - they did.  But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general?

Settle it down.  It's MIT.  They probably got all looped on Red Bull and tried to divide by zero or went and tried to calculate strippers "stats" in Smoots.

"If DU International seeks to recolonize after the suspension, we would be open to supporting their efforts provided they meet certain conditions."


Apparently delta needs to change.

Bah. 33 seconds.

But I reckon you shoulda left it as text. There's always gonna be Farkers reading the back-and-forth, going WTF?

I was on the recent "Game of Thrones cruise ship" thread, simultaneously scratching my head and chuckling away at all the crazy.... before I guessed that lots of the comments were quotes and references. It was a slightly surreal, fun experience.

Without a doubt, yes. If the actions were committed at an event sponsored and hosted by the fraternity, then the fraternity accepts responsibility for what its members and guests did at the event. If there are underage people drinking--and, given that even MIT is a college, there were--then the fraternity served it and charges can be brought.

I liken it to riding in someone else's car: It may be the passenger in the backseat toking on sticky icky, but the driver is still legally responsible.

In 2008, Robert M. Wells '08 died after falling five stories from a window of the house. There is no indication that the incident is related to the chapter's suspension.

...But we're going to mention it anyway in an off-hand manner just in case you needed a particular reason to demonize the frat.

It's appropriate to hold a fraternity accountable for the actions of the chuckleheads that they are directly responsible for.  You may have a valid point in there somewhere but this ain't it.

Delta Upsilon International has suspended its MIT chapter until spring 2016, according to MIT, which has also withdrawn recognition of the fraternity's chapter as an independent living group.
The suspension, effective immediately, follows "an investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior during unsanctioned events over IAP," according to the press release from MIT's Division of Student Life.


The farking frat's INITIALS are DUI FFS what the hell did you THINK they were up to?

Have hung with a lot of "Brass Rats" in my day let me just say that you do NOT want to be around highly intelligent and creative people with vast technical knowledge, who are under a lot of stress after they get a few drinks in them.   Bad, potentially time-space continuum threatening, shiat happens. Trust me,

Real Genius was the PG version of what really goes on.
