U.Va. alcohol warning for fraternities and sororities
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Officials at the University of Virginia are warning campus fraternities and sororities to curb drinking after multiple drinking-related incidents occurred during rush week.
University Dean of Students Allen Groves says he summoned all fraternity and sorority leaders to his office for a meeting last week. The Daily Progress (www.dailyprogress.com) reports the groups were told about a zero-tolerance policy on alcohol abuse.
Groves says two students were put on life support and at least six more were taken to a hospital last week. All have recovered.
Groves told the groups to come up with plans to minimize the potential for further alcohol-related incidents. On Saturday, the fraternities and sororities will announce the selection of new members.
