Back in March, we brought you the story of Kappa Delta Rho being suspended for posting creepy pictures of girls passed out and naked in their secret Facebook group. Vile behavior.
The university has now reached a ruling on the matter. It has removed KDR’s recognition as an IFC fraternity for the next three years. In addition to the pictures (which was the main driving factor), the university cited some hazing incidents for the punishment.
From Penn State:
The University’s investigation concluded that some KDR fraternity members had over the course of time engaged in sexual harassment and misconduct; hazing activities, such as forcing pledges to run errands, clean the fraternity house, and participate in boxing matches; and had forced pledges to “plank with bottle caps on their elbows.” This means they were forced to hold up their body weight on their arms with bottle caps placed underneath.
Pledges also were made to create stories containing pornographic images and a “sex position of the day;” members regularly posted embarrassing photos of women; used demeaning language to describe females; and cultivated a persistent climate of humiliation for several females.
Individual members of KDR are also going to be subjected to Penn State’s Office of Student Conduct to investigate if they are in violation of the university’s student code of conduct.
These guys deserved everything that they have coming to them. Good riddance..
