Well, at least they admitted that it goes far beyond Greek life. The worst hazing I've ever witnessed was from ROTC units and marching bands.

Sadly, Stone Foltz has died.

Done. Whoever is writing the news copy seems to make that same mistake an awful lot.

Sort of an odd point, the three students they got comments for were 1) his roommate, 2) a BG freshman and a woman who is a Junior & Brother from Alpha Phi Omega. *Really* weird (to me) to see an Alpha Phi Omega brother asked for an opinion on something that happened at a social fraternity.

(And BGSU as far as I can tell doesn't group Alpha Phi Omega with the social fraternities and sororities for anything like an overarching Greek Council)

(And I say this as an Alpha Phi Omega brother)

At this junction, it appears that whatever happened was pretty serious. Pi Kappa Alpha's national organization seems to have thrown the chapter way under the bus. Letters were removed from their house this morning. The University has indefinitely suspended the organization. Pike has issued a press release condemning the alleged actions.

It does appear that hazing is at least being alleged at this time and that all FSL activities at BGSU are suspended and each chapter is now being looked into.

WaPo's article claimed there was some sort of national backlash because another student died at another school a couple of weeks ago.

I just read a national news release about this young man’s tragic death. There were several family statements made by the Foltz family attorney who has, apparently, taken over as their representative. It’s NEVER a good sign for the Greek organization or the university when this happens.
I’m NOT saying it’s not warranted—it is. But that may explain why Pike immediately tried to cut all ties with the chapter.

Pi Kappa Alpha, Pike, threw their chapter under the bus. They didn't give this group the sort of supervision which would reveal problematic behavior and someone died. Hope they pay a pretty penny.

From everything I read, he was with an older member and drank the equivalent of 40 shots. I realize there is an investigation since his death and will try to catch up on the information that has been released to the public.

Drank the equivalent of 40 shots? Insanity.

The student life office at my employer is having a open discussion with staff and members tomorrow about this topic. I’m sure it will be interesting.
