Lehigh Sorority Banned Over ‘Morally Questionable’ Scavenger Hunt

Morally questionable scavenger hunts? Lehigh University speaks out.

on

A sorority at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania has been banned from the campus for more than two years after an investigation which the sorority was accused of sponsoring a road rally scavenger hunt Dec. 8, 2017, in which participants “received points for various acts including sexual activity, the use of drugs and alcohol, ingesting food and other liquids.

Alpha Chi Omega’s Theta Chi chapter has lost its recognition from Lehigh University, which is about 60 miles north of Philadelphia, and will be banned from campus through May 2020.

The Lehigh University blog stated, “This incident was a significant, reprehensible event that the entire chapter was aware of and leadership endorsed. This event did not only take place this year, but there is credible information that this event has been going on for years. The panel is deeply concerned about the escalated nature of the content of this year’s list and we are unconvinced that this escalation wouldn’t continue.

” … The current conduct history of AXO does not lead the panel to have confidence in the chapter’s ability to act and demonstrate care and concern for its members, particularly related to health and safety concerns. This type of behavior is simply unacceptable considering the current climate on college campuses.
