Fraternities and sororities at Berkeley ban parties amid sexual assault allegations
Fraternities and sororities at UC Berkeley have taken a bold stance against sexual violence, voluntarily banning all parties following reports of two sexual assaults last week at off-campus frat functions.

Interfraternity Council President Daniel Saedi called it “relatively unprecedented” for the Greek system to suspend its own parties but said Friday that fraternities and sororities agreed to pause social events to figure out how to keep the functions safe. ---> click link to read article

They resumed their normal party registration process about two weeks after this announcement. Considering how few of the social functions actually get officially registered at Cal, however, I don't know how much this changed the culture.
