As if the world needed more evidence that Lawrence, Kansas was just a giant vat of hot garbage, human waste, and Bill Self (which is a hot garbage/human waste hybrid), then we got some on Monday as the university’s IFC suspended all social activities for the 24 fraternities there. And just like that, the one semi-redeeming quality about KU is gone in a blink of an eye.
From Lawrence Journal-World:
The freeze comes in the wake of several fraternities being investigated and/or suspended for various violations.
As part of the freeze, the news release said, the IFC will work with university officials to strengthen oversight and address “systemic behavioral issues.”
Under the freeze, all social activities will be paused, the news release said; only chapter meetings, philanthropic events and service events are allowed. Fraternity members who live in fraternity houses may continue to live in those houses.
“The University of Kansas has a proud tradition of greek life, and IFC chapters are integral to the KU community and the development of the men involved in them,” said Daniel Lee, IFC president. “But it has become clear there are significant and systemic conduct problems in the IFC community that we must address, and we must address them now.”
What’s worse than a campus-wide fraternity suspension? A self-inflicted campus-wide fraternity suspension.
I’m not sure what’s happening over in Lawrence, but it must be pretty bad when the IFC president decides to shut it all down. What, is the football team in danger of winning a conference game? Are the meth heads loose again? Is thevaginator’s mom getting railroaded by everyone for the fifth time this semester? What’s happening?!
It’s gotta be hazing; it’s always hazing. And maybe alcohol violations. I’m not sure exactly what shutting down all social activities is supposed to do about that, as there’s almost always an investigation into some sort of allegation going on. However, I do enjoy watching the Jayhawks take an L from the comfort of my own couch.
Hey, KU, at least this should make beating it to Devonte’ Graham during the tourney in the privacy of your own shag sheets that much easier; no distractions. Nothing would make me happier than watching 16 seed Penn destroy you, though. Not even the end of world hunger, and I truly mean that..
