The Penn State fraternity Kappa Delta Rho was suspended yesterday after police found photos of nude women on the fraternity’s private Facebook page. Members took photos of nude women, mostly passed out or asleep, and shared them with each other online. According to WJAC, the news outlet that broke this story, the police obtained about 20 photos when they originally found the Facebook page, though members’ computers and the Facebook page have been wiped clean in the time since.
Penn State’s Interfraternity Council President, Rick Groves, told the university’s news website Onward State, “In response to the discovery of the two Facebook pages allegedly posted by Kappa Delta Rho, the chapter was immediately placed on full chapter suspension by Penn State’s Interfraternity Council. This suspension shall remain in place until all investigations regarding the incident have been completed.” While suspended, the fraternity is forbidden to participate in any IFC functions. They also can’t host any socials, hold chapter meetings, or recruit any new members.
Police are currently working with the IFC and the Office of Student Conduct as they investigate this matter. Both the university and the national fraternity are also investigating; the national fraternity held a “show cause” hearing with the chapter over the phone.
A comment thread posted on the private page was made public today. The thread in question includes “I banged her lol” and ends with the comment, “lol delete these or we will be on CNN in a week.”
