Show F king you're done with his ****
On September 13th, 2017, a tragedy occurred at Louisiana State University. Maxwell Gruver, an 18-year-old freshman rushing the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, passed away due to alcohol poisoning caused by alleged hazing.

This terrible event caused a necessary, well-deserved look into hazing in Greek Life and other student organizations on campuses across the country. The President of LSU, F. King Alexander, proposed a task force that would examine how to prevent future hazing and would create new regulations to decrease the hazing culture at LSU.

The problem is, the LSU task force recommended regulations that have little to do with hazing, the cause of a student’s death. The purposed regulations create an even more dangerous environment for LSU’s students, especially those of them in Greek Life.

The first of these recommendations is to Ban Hard Alcohol and Common Source Alcohol from Greek houses and events. While this may seem like a sound recommendation at the surface, it encourages students who choose to drink to binge drink heavily before the events. This sort of binge drinking before an event or party is commonly known as “pre-gaming.” This pre-gaming can lead to serious issues as there is no supervision. Alcohol poisoning and drunk driving are likely to occur as students attempt to make it to these events as a direct result of these regulations. We believe it would be best if F. King Alexander and the task force would consider recanting this recommendation, that way events could continue with hard and common source alcohol, giving the university the ability to supervise and keep students safe.

The second of the two recommendations is to move all IFC tailgates from the Parade Grounds to individual chapter houses. This presents a problem if LSU is truly trying to make the changes they claim they are trying to make. They are moving tailgating from a centralized, public space that would be easier to supervise and police, to individual, spread out residencies that give the ability to hid possible issues and infractions much more easily. It seems like common sense that a centralized area like the Parade Grounds would be a much better option for the University.

In signing this petition, we are asking F. King Alexander to reconsider these regulations and focus on more realistic and safer alternatives.

Thank you.

Hasn’t Greek Life (primarily Fraternities) continued to have issues since the death of Gruver?

Isn’t there a rumor going around that he is stepping down in July? I don’t remember who posted it but it was about three weeks ago.

The one thing this school is good at is partying and tailgating. Why do you insist on ruining tailgating when it had nothing to do with Max's death?

Holy shite is this real? Whoever wrote this really needs to grow the frick up. This recommendation does not encourage binge drinking before events. Why don't you just grow up and find other hobbies?

You are the reason there should be a post count before someone can start a tread.

I am seriously amazed by how stupid you people are. Your rebuttal to the first recommendation saying that it will encourage binge drinking is laughable. You're saying you don't have enough self control to handle anything.

You sound like a bunch of spoiled brats that didn't get their way. Poor you.

When I was in school we called it "Buy-a-buddy" or "Rent-a-friend".

This is news to me, I thought LSU had already shut down frats and sororities.

Dont’t worry these policies won’t work. When more problems arise they will be changed again.

I get what they are saying here, but this is a pretty weak argument. Presumably with these regulations the school is trying to eliminate or at least curtail excessive drinking or drunken behavior in its entirety. The opposition from the Greeks are "we're getting fricked up anyway. So you may as well just let us do it at the house!"

Another good one:

"We're going to fight and do stupid shite anyway. So it's better to just let us do it where you can see it and "supervise" it.

FTR, I have ZERO problem with the Greek system. But the opposition inadvertently gives more ammo to the school to shut the whole system down. In essense they are saying "we're not going to stop doing the things you don't want us to do simply because you enacted some stricter regulations. So you may as well just let us be."

Have you been following this process or are just reading up on it now?

Common source alcohol was already ban at events so this isn’t anything new. Also the task force included a number of Greek students who are all in favor of moving tailgating to the houses. This started in the falll and the students prefer it to the Parade Ground, which had turned into Bourbon Street in gameday with fights and multiple arrests each week.
