Totally off topic, but did anyone look at the report cards for Greeks? Why do the men have like 40 people living in a 36 bed house? The fraternity side is a sad state of affairs.

Delta Tau Delta Charged With Furnishing Alcohol To Minors
http://onwardstate.com/2017/10/31/de...hol-to-minors/

Quote:
Furnishing charges were filed Monday against the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, who allegedly gave alcohol to underage student Brendan Soh on Thursday, September 28. Soh, who was suspected of drinking alcohol at the fraternity, was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious on Calder Way that night.

According to the criminal complaint against DTD, police found Soh unconscious but breathing on Calder Way when they responded to a report at 1:37 a.m. that Thursday. He was then transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Witnesses said he was attempting to jump a fence when his leg got caught and he fell

.....

The university placed DTD on interim suspension earlier this month to investigate the fraternity’s potential involvement with the Soh’s injuries. It currently remains suspended on this interim basis, so Penn State likely hasn’t yet completed its own student conduct investigation.

And DTD has been suspended.

That's 10 out of 49.

This demanded instant culture change will be problematic. These kids signed up for fraternities with one kind of culture. Now they're being asked to adopt something completely different in order to mitigate the legal risk to the University, their alumni and their national organizations.

If these groups survive at all, they're going to be rebuilding from the ground up and sadly, I don't think the demanded changes are going to do anything other than push the risky behavior out of the Greek world and into another sort of student group which will be much less responsive to the administration's orders from on high.

Especially in this part of the country where Greek membership doesn't open doors quite the way it does in say, Mississippi or Alabama. People aren't going to suck it up and pay tons of $$ to be constantly monitored and hounded because having XYZ on your resume is helpful in state politics or whatever.

The partying is going to get pushed off campus and the town is going to have a shit fit.

And it continues...funny thing. In the middle of October I had jury duty. While I wasn't selected for the jury, I did get paneled, and as I'm sitting there staring at the defendant's attorney, I was like why do I know this guy from somewhere? It was one of these brother's attorneys.

Investigators say the video shows Piazza does not obtain his own alcohol at any point. In fact, authorities say, every drink consumed was provided to him by a fraternity brother.

Piazza was furnished with at least 18 drinks in 1 hour and 22 minutes, Parks Miller's office said.
