UConn Sorority Hazing Leads to its Closure

A UConn sorority recently took matters too far by making its members drink liquor by force. Its hazing activities simply became too bizarre for comfort and so the group was banned from the university campus. Titled Kappa Kappa Gamma, the sorority was given an eviction notice. But the sorority members have decided to contest this ultimatum that they have been handed. 

For a total time period of three years, this rowdy and noisy sorority will be suspended and their headquarters will be taken over thereby depriving them of a proper base. The whole things started when the educational authorities got a whiff of what sort of wild and wayward actions were being carried out by the sisters in the sorority with boys from other fraternities. 

“The University’s decision to revoke Kappa Kappa Gamma’s registration and recognition was not taken lightly, but it was appropriate and imperative in light of the severity of the circumstances,” university officials said in a statement Wednesday. “The safety of our students is paramount, and UConn will continue to take swift and appropriate action whenever necessary to protect their well-being.”

 

The rash and loose behavior obviously had to have some consequences otherwise the saying anything goes applied to everything. Among some of the objectionable deeds that got done were: force-feeding each other alcoholic drinks, behaving like other species and finally a really odd thing termed sizzling like bacon. 

Here the sisters got down on the floor and started twisting and turning and squiggling. Especially, the forcible drunkenness by minors was a serious offence and had to be taken notice of by those concerned. However, the sorority members have pleaded that just because some of them act in such a manner doesn’t mean all of them should be punished. 

"Kappa believes that removing an entire chapter from campus for the poor decisions made by a few individuals at an unsanctioned event is wrong," the sorority said.

The problem is last month one member ended up in hospital for alcohol poisoning. Things had come to a head and this rowdy behavior had to be stopped. Safety and security come first and there are obviously limits to risk-taking. Just because some of the stuff that goes on is left to individual discretion does not mean that one stops being discreet in one’s moral code. However, UConn's Kappa sorority can appeal the banning decision until May 14.
