I'm with you, Kevin. I was a grad student at MIT when Scott Krueger died as a result of hazing at FIJI. MIT immediately enacted a form of the nuclear option by banning alcohol at any event where anyone under 21 might be present - not just fraternity events, but ALL events. This put the kibosh on department Christmas parties, dorm parties, etc.

MIT did take a step back. Within a few months, alcohol was no longer verboten, but some sweeping changes were made. For example, freshmen must now live in dormitories - before this incident, fraternity pledges moved into the house the moment they signed. (To allow for this, a new dorm was built, and two graduate dorms were turned into undergrad housing.)

Anyway ... My prayers are with the family of this young man. Scott Krueger died 20 years ago, and apparently we have learned nothing.
