There have been way too many unfortunate events across the country in the last few years but San Marcos has just made the headlines 1 too many times for the wrong things

Don't forget this one
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/texas-frat-suspends-operations-20-year-old-woman-death-article-1.2855987

Does anyone know what ever happened with the trial or ruling on this happening? Because I don't remember hearing any more about it

and for those of you who think more/stricter regulations are the answer:

Quote:
The death comes about a week after the national chapter of Phi Kappa Psi ordered the Texas State chapter to cease its social activities because of an on-going investigation, university officials confirmed Tuesday. Texas State had launched an investigation Oct. 4 based on a complaint it had received in late September. The university would not disclose the nature of those allegations.

agreed, Saul. And also those that think losing a charter is going to make everything end. Because there are always going to be those that are going to seem to think that they have nothing left to lose if their charter has already been pulled or is in the process of being pulled that seems like it could have possibly been the case here.

I assume at some point greek orgs will just no longer be connected to universities and go on their own. The ban won't stop the parties and rape and death and all the other negative things that happen at both greek and non greek parties. but I can see why the school would suspend them all when there is a trend and they will have liability.
