In the first three weekends of school this semester, UTPD has received numerous reports of fraternities serving alcohol in frat houses, including to minors. Just last weekend, three different fraternity houses (Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi and Sigma Nu) produced ten underage consumption of alcohol citations and two arrests for underage consumption of alcohol.
“We almost had a student die who was allegedly drinking in a fraternity house,” Davis said. “I don’t want to talk to a parent and say, ‘Your son has died,’ or ‘Your daughter has died.'”
The incident she referred to occurred during the first weekend of school, when a male student fell and hit his head in Presidential Courtyard after attending a fraternity rush event. He recovered in the hospital.
