Greek life at the University of Southern California will be experiencing a bit of a halt, specifically on the infamous "Row."
"The Row," a stretch of 28th Street that is home to USC's fraternity and sorority houses, has been slapped with sanctions after what USC's student affairs deemed as "the worst weekend of the semester."
According to the Daily Trojan, between last Thursday and Sunday, seven people were transported to the hospital via ambulance due to alcohol consumption. In addition, one non-USC female (she is reportedly from Loyola Marymount University) had to go to the hospital because she fell off a table at a Sigma Alpha Epsilon party. She was in serious condition.
As a reaction to this wild weekend, USC has imposed a few restrictions: registered events can only take place between Friday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m., students will be required to show USC identification in order to attend Greek events, the Los Angeles Fire Department must approve registered events before they occur, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been placed on social probation.
The sanctions are expected to continue indefinitely and will most likely not be lifted before Halloween, which takes place on a Thursday this year.
