The fact that school is out for the summer didn’t stop school officials at Oklahoma State University from suspending the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house for two years. The next time that people will be able to (legally) walk through the doors will be in August 2016.
According to reports, Phi Delt had already committed several violations–including the paddling of pledges which left one with severe bruises–before going ahead and racking up a few more. The most recent transgressions included discovering, “Beer… on chapter property in February, and a member cursed a game official at an intramural game April 15.”
Listen, there’s not an intramural game that I was a part of where someone wasn’t cursing at the ref. And you know what? They deserved it. Every. Single. Time. I don’t care if you have to put in a certain number of hours for your work study program, if you don’t know how to ref flag football then you should be swiping student IDs at the gym. At least there you have a convenient bathroom you can run to to grab a tissue if someone hurts your feelings.
But back to the suspension. Obviously we don’t condone the paddling part (remember kids, cup your balls and clench) but the fact of the matter is that if you go into any fraternity, you will find beer. The fact that Phi Delt was busted is just bad luck. It also probably doesn’t help that Phi Delta Theta is a nationally dry fraternity.
Sorry, bros. Still proud to be a Phi.
