A sorority from none other than the riotous UConn. After students destroyed their own campus in celebration of winning the NCAA, sorority members decided to take partying to the next level. UConn suspended the Delta Zeta sorority after they “forced men to drink booze, eat dog treats, paint their bodies, wear women’s underwear and take alcohol shots off each other’s bodies.”
Sounds like fun to me. JK. Hazing is a real issue in college Greek Life. It’s an issue that has literally caused people to die. While I understand that there is something to be said about how sharing an embarrassing moment can build solidarity with your peers, I have no idea why people take shit so far. There is a huge difference between teasing among friends and being blatantly cruel to someone while you gulp down another Bud Light and taunt their ego. I am also curious to know the context of these events. I have never been in a sorority so I am unclear on why sorority members would be hazing fraternity members? The school has banned the sorority from participating in any chapter activities while they investigate the off-campus hazing event.
“This action is preliminary in nature and is utilized when information indicates that the presence of your organization on campus could pose a threat to the health and safety of the campus community. It is in effect until this student conduct matter is resolved,” said the UConn associate director of community standards, Kimberly Hill,.
UConn seems to have an issue hazing as the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternities have also recently been suspended in March.
