Drunken Behavior Causes Sorority Suspensions at Miami U.

Two Miami University sororities have been suspended by school officials for drunken behavior at their annual spring formals, according to a Dayton Daily News report by Meagan Engle:

“Pi Beta Phi and Alpha Xi Delta were suspended after drunken students damaged Lake Lyndsay Lodge in St. Clair Twp. and the National Underground Railroad Museum in Cincinnati…

Many alumnae were embarrassed as details of the parties made headlines across the country with stories of Greeks vomiting, urinating and having intercourse in public places.”

Engle spoke with Barbara Jones, the University’s Vice President for Student Affairs, who said that this level of toxic drinking among sorority members was rare in the past but is becoming increasingly common: “Some of the behaviors that have impacted the fraternities in the past, are impacting the sororities now. I haven’t seen anything to this extent. It certainly seems to have escalated,” Jones said.

    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with education and licensing. It’s good that two Miami University sororities have been suspended for damaging the National Underground Railroad Musuem and the Lake Lyndsay Lodge. The ageist drinking age does nothing to decrease the terrible behavior which is increasing in sororities. Responsibility in behavior, especially among alcohol consumption are the answers to putting a stop to rowdiness. Sororities are becoming more rowdy because gender is not barrier to behavior.

    America should get in line with the rest of the 1st world countries, and actually lower its drinking age to the age of majority, which in the us is 18. Except in Mississippi, Nebraska, and Alabama.

    18 is to old for a training age, make the license age 16, cause a 21 year old doesn’t
    have to have a license, never should the voting
