In what should come as little surprise to anyone who's been following the events surrounding the fallout from what surely must have been the best party ever last weekend at the Pi Kappa Alpha house, the University of Tennessee today has announced the fraternity will be banned until at least 2015. WBIR reports:
The Student Judicial Affairs agreement specifies that UT will not consider allowing the fraternity to reorganize at UT until spring, 2015. The university could extend the suspension at that time if it "deemed appropriate."All students must be out of the Pi Kappa Alpha house in Fraternity Park by 5:00 p.m. on October 7.In addition, the university will form a task force of alumni, students, faculty and staff to review Greek life on campus and to make recommendations for "improving a personal sense of responsibility among members and enhancing the chapters' contributions to campus life."
Will this ban stop UT from continuing to be national news, as everyone and their mother weighs in on alcohol enemas, vodka tampons, eyeballing, and all other kinds of stupid ways to get drunk that aren't nearly as fun as, you know, just getting drunk? Only time will tell. But for this weekend, at least, you can stock up on the box wine at a discount (we strongly recommend pouring it into a glass) -- Downtown Wine and Spirits is offering 10 percent off all the boxed goods in honor of those upstanding fraternity bros.
