“recklessly and intentionally endangering the health or safety”
This is a ridiculous charge. You would think the sorority would be praised for having a sound commitment to academic excellence, but no.
The College Fix reports:
Sorority charged with ‘hazing’ for requiring members to study 25 hours per week
A Latina sorority at the University of Virginia is suing the school after it was punished last year for allegedly “hazing” its members.
What exactly did Sigma Lambda Upsilon do that was considered “recklessly and intentionally endangering the health or safety” of its sisters? Requiring members to study for 25 hours per week.
According to The Daily Progress, an SLU recruit had complained to a professor about the sorority’s mandate, and the prof then informed the UVa student affairs office and … the police.
After an investigation, campus officials determined the studying requirement violated school hazing rules.
The sorority’s lawsuit says UVa “made th[e] finding even though studying for 25 hours per week is not uncommon at leading colleges and universities.” In addition, UVa determined the sorority engaged in hazing “despite never providing SLU or any other fraternal organization notice of a general prohibition against studying 25 hours per week.”
