In a mutiny against strict party rules imposed last year following allegations of frat house sexual assaults, six USC fraternities formally disaffiliated from the university Friday — prompting warnings of “serious ramifications” from campus administrators.

"Fraternities must prohibit guests from entering bedrooms during social events. They must post guards not only at entry points and gathering areas, but also “at stairs or hallways leading to bedrooms,” the policy document states. Security vendors will be hired in consultation with USC officials."


I'm not sure how you're going to tell people who live in a house that they can't have guests in their room.

During a party? They are supposed to be at the party. Sorority houses all have rules against guests in sleeping areas during certain hours every day. The number of SAs at this campus are insanely high. If they aren't policing themselves, then there are consequences.

The party narrative has to change if Greek Life is going to survive. Get parties out of residences and have them at local bars, rented halls, etc. Fraternities would be saving so much money in liability insurance if they stopped hosting parties at their houses.

Probably whatever they saved in insurance, they would spend in hiring out clubs or bars. This is LA. I canít imagine what it costs to rent out a club for a night, plus have extra security to check guest lists. And call me cynical but Iím guessing the clubs would jack up their prices because they know these kids are over a barrel. So much for everyone being able to afford to join Greek life.

And those young ladies agreed to those terms when they moved into the house, and I'm guessing those terms were set by the local chapter and/or their HQ, not the university.

We hosted events at venues in San Francisco fairly often, and usually by ourselves. 2 or 3 Greek orgs investing together could really make some magic offsite, even in urban California on a friday or saturday night. USC is not that far from DTLA...some of the weekday lunch restaurants with liquor licenses may have no interest in hosting unfettered weekend club crowds, but could be interested in an arrangement like this.

I was in LA this past weekend and I saw the men visiting the houses on 28th st. Depending on the source, the count is now 8 or 10 that have disaffiliated.

The only question I have is will their national organizations still support them? I've seen a few cases where a chapter will disaffiliate with a school but nationals will still recognize and support them.

It's not as though they can opt out though. You make it sound like a choice, but it's the reality of being in a sorority chapter with a house. Most chapters with houses have a live in requirement.
