Apparently not clued in to the fact that it is not OK to post scandalous photos on the Internet, two groups of students—one from the University of North Dakota and another from Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania—are in trouble for shenanigans captured on camera and posted online.
Fifteen men's and women's track team members and two student trainers from Slippery Rock were suspended from competing in a Maryland meet this weekend after a teammate posted photos of a drinking party on Facebook, the Rocket reports (though there's no comment from any of the suspended students).
At North Dakota, a sorority is in trouble for pictures from a November 2007 party that show members "dressed in crude mock-ups of American Indian attire," the Dakota Student reports. A formal discrimination complaint was filed with the university, and the sorority was placed on social suspension, prohibiting its members from participating in any activities. The sorority's national headquarters says it "sincerely regrets the recently-reported actions involving chapter members at the University of North Dakota. We realize that the actions of the chapter demonstrate the need for greater chapter education about diversity and personal dignity." The sorority is still under review by school officials.
