You never really think of sororities hazing their pledges, at least in the traditional sense. Less paddle swats, more paddles being covered in glitter and given as gifts. Sure, we’ve all heard tales of sorority sisters using Sharpies, but we never hear anything that threatens the girls’ actual, physical wellbeing. Good going, Title IX.
Maybe that’s for good reason, though. A sorority at the University of Central Florida is now in hot water for trying to haze like the boys.
UCF has suspended its Chi Omega chapter over hazing allegations against three members of the sorority, who are accused of blindfolding two pledges and taking them to woods on campus to drain an entire bottle of rum.
The University of Central Florida police department also is investigating the April 4 incident.
After the two drank the bottle, the pledges were taken to a school parking garage and abandoned, according to a report from UCF. The only injury reported involved a pledge who scraped and bruised her hand and arm after she fell while trying to find her way home.
The boyfriend of one of the women eventually picked them up and dropped them off at an apartment on campus. No names or ages were released.
Needless to say, I feel bad for those poor girls. It sounds like they suffered through horrific experiences, the likes of which I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemies. I mean, being a student at the University of Central Florida? Those poor, traumatized students.
