Syracuse University and Their Fraternity Mishaps

Gabriella Perez, Staff Writer

Some time last week or so, Syracuse’s fraternity Theta Tau initiation leaked out to officials who took the matter into their own hands, along with the officials of the university.

The video showed the frat boys displaying “egregious racism, sexism, ableism, anti-Semitism and homophobia.

The University suspended 18 boys from the fraternity giving them alternative classes and study arrangements.

Was the University wrong for doing so? No, no they weren’t because the fraternity chapter apologized and never intended for the video to be centered around racism or hate.

Did the 18 boys deserve such a punishment? Yes, they had to have had something done to them; therefore, it would most likely start rallies indicating the videos as something serious when they were only intended as jokes.
