After offensive behavior put fraternities in the spotlight at the University of Oklahoma and Penn State, the heat is now on North Carolina State University.
Two fraternities at the institution have been suspended – one for an offensive pledge book that included references to lynching and rape, and the other for drug and sexual assault allegations. The national Pi Kappa Phi organization announced Thursday that its chapter at the school will remain suspended while comments made in a pledge notebook are investigated. The notebook was found at a Raleigh restaurant and included remarks such as “Man, that tree is so perfect for lynching,” and “if she’s hot enough, she doesn’t need a pulse.”
Alpha Tau Omega is also under investigation after a woman called police on March 1st to report that she had been sexually assaulted at the frat house. She also told police that drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, were being sold out of the home. Upon searching the area, police found drug paraphernalia, a scale, and white powder in a small bag. Still, the woman’s claims of sexual assault and drug activity have been questioned by the organization’s national chief executive officer.
The saga continues…
