I'm Shocked. Shocked, I Tell You.

Who'd've thought that there would be alcohol involved in fraternity or sorority events?  Certainly not I!  I can absolutely understand the draconian reaction to this unsavory news:
Officials on Monday banned all Washington State University sorority and fraternity events, from formals to football tailgates, for the rest of the semester.

The Pullman school's Interfraternity Council made the move along with the Panhellenic Council, an umbrella organization for some sororities. The councils made the announcement in a letter to students, staff and others, citing alcohol and drug-use issues, as the reason for banning all events as of 5 p.m. Monday.
When you're ready to blame the grown-ups for this, read to the end of the story:
Current WSU President Kirk Schulz tweeted Monday night that the move was not his decision but the decision of WSU student leaders. "Let's give them credit for taking a bold stand for student safety," Schulz said.
