It's just offloading liability. Not unlike what NPC orgs did regarding alcohol and parties. It's just that now, we're offloading the liability onto our members themselves instead of someone else.
By "events" I'm talking about "rituals" and "traditions." Things like "big brother nights" or "sorority mother nights," etc. Things that are focused around the pledges. They are very high risk events. Not general parties. Parties usually have restricted guest lists, security and other measures to keep them under some control.
