Rutgers University has banned fraternity and sorority house parties at its main campus for the rest of the spring semester after several alcohol-related problems this school year, including the death of a student.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- More than 100 Penn State University students and other supporters demonstrated Friday against a fraternity accused of posting photos of nude or partly nude women, some asleep or passed out, on an invitation-only Facebook page, urging the administration to take stronger action against those involved.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Two fraternities at North Carolina State University have been suspended - one for what appeared to be an offensive pledge book, the other for drug and sexual assault allegations - the latest chapters reprimanded in a wave of unseemly fraternity behavior around the country.
Penn State's president has told the university community an investigation into the Facebook posting of nude photographs by a now-suspended fraternity could lead to a re-evaluation of the overall fraternity system.
Racist chants. Nude photos of unconscious women. A criminal investigation into hazing. Fraternities around the country seem to be coming under fire as never before over behavior that would shock the frat boys of "Animal House."
