Excerpt: some spelling errors/typos corrected HERE for clarity: See the original for the typos. When you do, you’ll ask yourself how this student managed to write an essay lucid enough to gain acceptance to Rider. No, I’m not joking. Check the original out. Moderator

I went to Rider and I [am] a Greek student. This is not the 1st time kids drank and Rider did not know. The Greek system was in trouble for hazing in the past, Ada Badgley’s (archon 1999) own house Phi Sigma Sigma [Theta Eta chapter] had their issues. She would be the dumbest person in the world to honestly say she does not know what goes on in the houses.
She has no direct control and it’s not like she poured drinks down the kid’s mouth. Yet if it was a structured function [news stories say it was unregistered: moderator] and Rider turned their eyes b/c this is what always happens. Big little night, sweatheart night, Bid night and so on then they are liable.
This viewpoint expresses that of a Rider Greek student and the opinions here are not necessarily those of the moderator.
