Fraternity Being Kicked Off Campus For Straight Up Wrecking This Hotel Room

I’m not quite sure why trashing the hotel room is so glamorous. I like a good party as much as the next girl, but that doesn’t generally involve breaking furniture and windows. Call me crazy, but it’s always been possible for me to have a good time without destroying anything except my liver, my relationships, and my reputation. Standard.

But alas, the University of Michigan’s members of Sigma Alpha Mu caused nearly $500,000 in damages to a hotel in Gaylord Michigan for an event, and basically straight up said “fuck it,” as they decided not to pay the damages.

USA Today reported executive director Leland Manders’ statement:

“It is regrettable that these vandals, as well as the officers of the chapter, decided that avoiding personal accountability and/or university sanctions took priority over the welfare of the entire chapter; their lack of cooperation led to the university’s withdrawal of recognition of the entire chapter for a four-year period.”

The fraternity is being barred from campus for a period of time not exceeding four years, which is the maximum punishment that can be imposed on a student organization. Responsible individuals are being further investigated and have not yet received disciplinary action. Sigma Delta Tau sorority was also placed on a disciplinary probation for two years for witnessing the vandalism without putting a stop to it.

But at least they played out a cool line from a song.
