Moderator: Please note that SUNY Albany has TWO Zeta Beta Tau chapters. One is a national and is recognized by the university. It played no part in the recent hazing death.
A second, unrecognized Zeta Beta Tau has been connected with the death of a pledge.
Thanks to Dean Harwood for this headsup:
The Albany Student Press has a story indicating that this was part of a big/little brother night for an underground version of ZBT – http://www.albanystudentpress.net/big-brothers-at-underground-zbt/. It also looks like five people were hospitalized as a result of this party – http://www.albanystudentpress.net/ualbany-student-in-critical-condition-at-albany-medical-center/.
UAlbany appears to have a recognized chapter of Zeta Beta Tau, and I wonder how this might fit with them.
