A Penn State fraternity has been suspended by its national organization –

There have been protests on the State College campus –

And President Eric Barron now says the university’s entire fraternity system may be reevaluated.

What happened?

Kappa Delta Rho members created a private, invitation-only Facebook page –

And used it to post photos of naked – or semi-nude young women.

Some appeared to be asleep or passed out.

144 students and alumni had access to that page.

University officials only found out when a former frat member blew the whistle.

In fact –

Kappa Delta Rho members took down an earlier Facebook page –

When a victim spotted her photo and complained.

There’s a pattern here –

And it needs to be broken.

It’s been 37 years since the movie “Animal House” was released.

It was meant to be a comedy –

Not a template for fraternity life.

It’s obvious that just being eighteen – or older – is no guarantee of maturity.

Penn State’s not the only school that should take a closer look at its fraternities –

But that’s a good place to start.
