Cornell Fraternity on Probation for Secret Sex Game

Cornell Fraternity on Probation for Secret Sex Game

An investigation by the school's Fraternity and Sorority Review Board found that new members were told not to say anything about the contest to the women they had sex with. The fraternity found out about the allegations in December, before the review board hearing.

In case of a tie, according to a CBS report, the member who had sex with the heaviest woman would come out on top.

After a slew of allegations throughout 2017, the university's Fraternity and Sorority Review Board launched an investigation into the ZBT members' behavior and practices at the Ivy league school located in upstate NY.

Zeta Beta Tau joins a growing list of United States college fraternities that have been embarrassed and disciplined after horrific - and at times illegal - behaviour. The game involved the Zeta Beta Tau members who received points by sleeping with overweight women at the Ivy League campus.

Cornell's fraternity and sorority review board determined the chapter was in violation of policies against hazing and sexually abusive behavior.

The statement outlined a number of corrective measures: The chapter will conduct a "full membership review", expelling members as necessary.

What the fraternity did is not "normal", Paul Russell, president of Cornell's Interfraternity Council, told the Sun.

Ryan Lombardi, vice president for student and campus life, said in a statement the school emailed to HuffPost on Wednesday that ZBT's actions were "abhorrent to me and antithetical to our values as a community". "The IFC was appalled and disgusted by the activity described in the reports".

The frat has been placed on probation for two years.

"The events detailed in The Sun were neither chapter sanctioned activities, nor ones that brothers were aware of", the statement read.

Cornell has placed the fraternity on probation for two years and during that time the chapter must have a live in adviser and participate in programs that will educate members about sexual assault.

"We are committed to demonstrating through our actions that this inexcusable behavior will not be tolerated, and as such, we will take the necessary steps to ensure we retain the ideals and values of our brotherhood, specifically Social Responsibility and Integrity", said the ZBT.X It is reported that other ZBT chapters at American universities have been sanctioned for misconduct. As CBS News reported, Zeta Beta Tau must hire a live-in advisor during this period.
