The other day I was looking for something to read, and I found my dad's copy of Rolling Stone in the living room so I started looking through some of the articles. One of them in particular, regarding hazing in college stood out. (the article can be found here).
Now, this isn't the first time I've heard about some of crazy things frats do, but some of the things in that article are really fucked up. It's difficult to believe that anyone could actually do such crazy and disgusting things and actually enjoy it too. Here are some of my personal favorite quotes from that article, for those of you that don't feel like reading the whole thing:
- " I was a member of a fraternity that asked pledges, in order to become a brother, to: swim in a kiddie pool of vomit, urine, fecal matter, semen and rotten food products"
- " fraternity reportedly beat their pledges; another was said to place them in dog crates while the brothers vomited on them."
- " One student tells me that during his pledge term, the brothers in his house set up a tarp in the fraternity basement, covered it in vomit, and made the pledges do a "slip and slide." He loved it. "Everyone peed on it and threw in their chaw," he says. "I thought it was great. I did it 10 times. But I was getting kind of cut up, so the pledge trainer told me I really should stop so I wouldn't get too many infections."
