Bet everyone knew the hazing was going on. But they only stop the frats after there is a body count.

More fallout from the Bowling Green Massacre.

"This is permanent loss of recognition - the fraternity will never again be recognized at BGSU in the future until your alumni contribute enough to the university to help us change our minds."

"The university's investigation found the fraternity to be reckless with a disregard for the health and safety of our community"

Why, what'd they do? Hold classes during a pandemic?

Since TFA doesn't actually say what "expelling a fraternity" actually does... typically scholastic fraternal organizations are:

(1) Listed in campus housing guides, which is what students applying for dormitory housing when the dorms themselves are full.  Losing this means that the flow of new members will be substantially reduced, potentially cut off almost entirely depending on how (2) effects their ability to actively recruit outside of that.

(2) Recognized as equivalent to an on-campus organization for the purposes of advertising on on-campus space and sometimes even reserving the school's meeting spaces for events, and for recruiting on campus.  Losing this means that most of the typical things frats do to gain new members will constitute trespassing and potentially result in arrest (though more likely will get people physically removed from campus in a less permanent manner, or potentially expelled with multiple incident reports).

(3) Partially or fully subsidized by other entities that have a parallel relationship with the college of some kind.  For instance, the frat's landlord may be getting a tax break for renting to a recognized student organization because it allows them to list themselves as student housing for tax purposes.  Scholarship money may be applicable to their rent (sorry, "dues") because most scholarships can be spent on rent, with the university often being needed to verify that expense before the scholarship will pay out, etc.

Losing your recognition with the University, the national level fraternal organization, or both, basically kills a frat dead. Actually not just frats, but pretty much any independent student housing; some of the cooperative housing setups I used to help manage and organize had sort of the same potential threat hanging over their heads.  I mean... in theory.  In reality it turns out that housing built to embody the ideals of communism (co-ops) tends to have problems like issues with street parking or minor arguments with zoning commissions, where the ones built to embody the ideals of capitalism (fraternities) have issues with continually plotting the intentional murder of their own members, so we never really felt like we were gonna make the top of the shiat list for the local universities or businesses the residents were involved in, really.

I never tried to join a frat. I have too little of a sense of humor to go through the hazing crap.

And the fact that none of them would want me anyway has nothing to do with it. I coulda been the first person to get all the black balls. All of them :)

I say this every time this story runs on here which is about monthly:


Frats should be outlawed, eliminated and done away with. There is no need for them. They kill kids regularly. It's what they do.

Frats have always felt like an American effort to replicate the English old boys network.

Good. There absolutely no reason why public colleges should allow private fraternities anyways. They are just a massive drain on resources and encourage idiotic behavior in an academic environment.

The co-op up the street from me had a fire in the grow-op at least once a semester. About 8? 9? years ago they had an OD, they kicked everybody out, renovated the shiat out of it, and turned it into an anti-drug/alcohol focused co-op.

It comes down to this:  most 20-year-olds are dumb and believe they are immortal.  Then something like this happens, everybody realizes that perhaps and that isn't the case, and changes are made.... and then they graduate and a new set of 20-year-olds emerges with no institutional memory of that last issue and the same mistake is made.  Because the new set of 20-year-olds still believe they are immortal and that the previous generation doesn't understand - even when that previous generation is only a few years older.

FTA: Stone Foltz, a 20-year-old sophomore...A test showed showed his blood alcohol content was nearly five times the legal limit.

Let's run the math here legal limit for a 20 year old is 0.00 times 5 gives us a total BAC of 0.00.  I don't see the problem.

/Yes, I know what they meant.

Is it time to just get rid of the fraternity system completely?
What benefit is there to the school, to be associated with them?
If a bunch of dudes wants to live together in a building, they can already do so, privately.

By a wide margin, the greek system is the oddest part of higher education.

And by odd I mean why are rape factories allowed anywhere near campus?
