Officials on Monday banned all Washington State University sorority and fraternity events, from formals to football tailgates, for the rest of the semester.When you're ready to blame the grown-ups for this, read to the end of the story:
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.
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.
