Re the ex KDR pledge, if he really did refuse to file a formal complaint, that's a tad sketchy.

How Current Fraternity Suspensions Will Affect THON

http://onwardstate.com/2018/01/08/ho...l-affect-thon/

Fortunately, they're working things out so that paired organizations in good standing are not affected, and neither are Four Diamond Family relationships with the suspended orgs.

A Penn State fraternity member was just found dead in his dorm this week. Not a lot of details right now, but the death may coincide with a reported drug incident that occurred around the same time. A university spokesperson said that the student was a member of ATO, but did not say whether it was a fraternity-related incident. Very sad for Penn State, regardless. My condolences to the student's family.

Actually, Tim Piazza is deceased. Ryan Burke is getting 3 mo house arrest, 100 hours of community service and a $3000 fine.

I hate to dredge this up again, but tomorrow evening, 8/25 at 8 on CNN is a special report called: “A Deadly Haze”. The previews show the Beta house at Penn State, but the previews seem to indicate that it’ll focused on widespread fraternity hazing and alcohol consumption.
While part of me hates the negativity, it’s VERY important that our collegiate chapter members realize the dangers associated with hazing and binge drinking, especially with a new school year beginning.
If only they WATCHED the news....sigh....

So, the Piazza family reached a settlement with Beta Theta Pi. Terms are discussed in the article linked below:

https://www.centredaily.com/news/loc...217757260.html

As many of you may know, there is an alumni that donated over $8M to the renovation of this house. There is a lawsuit pending about the future of this property and his rights. Does anyone else find it odd that Beta Theta Pi has agreed that the family will be given a say in the future use of this property? Of all of their well intentioned expectations, this particular request seems odd to me.

So are all of these new standards and protocols supposed to be just for Beta Theta Pi or for all Penn State Greek chapters? I also wonder if this settlement had anything to do with the NIC's announcement that hard liquor will no longer be allowed at chapter functions or in the chapter houses.

Just Beta Theta Pi!! That’s the only entity the suit was settled with. There’s no reason other fraternities should have to pay for their mistakes.

Personally, I see a lot of off campus unofficial houses in Beta’s future and “official” houses shrinking in size and occupancy. Smart strategy, really.

I hate when people say “hazing rituals.”
