Another One Bites the Dust

It’s hard to argue that Greeks at Penn State have had a good year. Fraternities have been kicked out, tragedies have occurred, regulations became more strict… tonight we learn about the most recent event.

DDDThe Penn State chapter of Delta Delta Delta (Alpha Phi) was shut down this afternoon by the Tri Delta executive board for hazing violations. This decision comes after a month-long investigative probation period. We contacted the Panhellenic Council (PHC) and the chapter earlier this week, but both declined to comment.

This is one of the lower moments in Tri Delta’s 62-year history at Penn State, but it will almost certainly be back. This is how the executive board described the sanctions:

Tri Delta members of the chapter who have violated Tri Delta’s Obligations of Membership will be held accountable via individual sanctions, which may include permanent removal from membership. Active members in good standing will have the opportunity to continue membership as an unaffiliated collegiate member of Tri Delta. New members who have not been initiated will be released from their membership in Tri Delta and National Panhellenic Conference policies allow them to join another sorority if they so choose.

Jackye Clark, the president of the national organization, visited the chapter  earlier today to share this information.

Update 3:16: Since we originally posted, the Collegian also published an article about the withdrawal of the chapter’s chapter.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
