Okay, I’ve been warning you. If you haven’t removed your fraternity from your resume, you should do it now. Last chance. There are basically two types of fraternities; those who have done something publicly offensive (like rape) and those who haven’t…yet. It would be best not to admit to being a member until after you’re hired. Even after you get the job, you may not want to confess.
Stanford University — Kappa Alpha, Broch Turner’s fraternity, joins the list of suspended frats that include:
Cornell University — Psi Upsilon. Wolfgang Ballinger president of the chapter was arrested after an alleged sexual assault in his fraternity house bedroom.
University of Illinois — Delta Tau Delta. John Enochs received a light plea bargain for one count of misdemeanor battery, instead of the two charges of felony rape.
Buffalo State College — Alpha Phi Alpha after pledge dies recently as a result of off-campus fraternity hazing stunt.
University of Florida – Zeta Beta Tau fraternity for obscene behavior.
Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA — Sigma Nu for posting an offensive sign.
University of OK (not to be confused with You Okay) – Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members sang racial slurs on a bus.
Yale — Delta Kappa Epsilon for offensive chants.
University of Arizona – Sigma Alpha Epsilon for racial slurs and off campus behavior.
Cal State Northridge — Tau Kappa Epsilon for hazing and sexual misconduct and Pi Kappa Phi for the death of a student.
University of Michigan — Sigma Alpha Mu and sorority Sigma Delta Tau for trashing rooms at a ski resort.
Clemson University, SC — Sigma Alpha Epsilon for racism.
Wesleyan University — Psi Upsilon for possible rape (law suit)
Georgia Tech — Phi Kappa Tau for offensive e-mail.
Arizona State University — Tau Kappa Epsilon’s hosting an offensive racial themed party. Also at ASU in 2013 — a drunk member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was dumped at an emergency room. In 2012 as student drowned after a frat event.
Do you see the trend? Don’t join any fraternity with the Greek letters of Alpha, Delta, Epsilon, Kappa or Sigma. What the hell – don’t join any fraternity. (The above list isn’t all inclusive.)
