Sororities In Virginia, Colorado Punished For Drunkenness

Posted: Updated:

It was a bad weekend for sorority sisters in Virginia and Colorado.

Virginia Tech's chapter of Delta Zeta was forced to move off-campus by administrators because of repeated alcohol-related offenses, the Washington Post reports.

Current house residents will be allowed to remain in the house until the school year is over.

Fifteen hundred miles west, a group of Kappa Alpha Theta members at the University of Colorado-Boulder didn't even make it to their April 2 formal -- they were too drunk.

According to the Daily Camera:

Two underage University of Colorado students who were on their way to their sorority's formal at Folsom Field on Friday were taken to the hospital after consuming too much alcohol, prompting the house mother to shut down the event and police to issue several minor in possession tickets.

There's no mention of a rescheduled formal on Kappa Alpha Theta's website. But there is a mission statement, which reads: "Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Kappa Alpha Theta exists to nurture each member throughout her college and alumnae experience and to offer a lifelong opportunity for social, intellectual and moral growth as she meets the higher and broader demands of mature life."
