IFC, PHC continue discussion

The Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council will meet today to discuss the graphic photos of two individuals, one of whom is a member of USC’s Kappa Sigma chapter, appearing to have sex on the rooftop of Waite Phillips Hall on Saturday afternoon.

“[IFC] is appalled by the actions associated with the individuals in the pictures, and will work tirelessly to reverse the negative stereotypes such an action has perpetuated,” IFC president Pat Lauer wrote in an email.

Lauer said he cannot speak about sanctions being given to any IFC chapters right now, but he believes Kappa Sigma handled the incident properly. Kappa Sigma suspended the individual following the event.

“IFC is proud that Kappa Sigma has taken actions in governing themselves and their members by suspending the individual from their chapter,” Lauer wrote. “This is an individual issue and rest assured actions are being taken against that individual, but the affiliation of an individual should not be taken into consideration after an individual action.”

Mitchell Wilson, executive director of Kappa Sigma fraternity, said Kappa Sigma nationals is also currently investigating the incident.

“Any time you have a standards situation that has been violated, we have a due process to investigate the situation and determine the outcome,” Wilson said. “We are currently in the middle of due process for this individual.”

Denzil Suite, associate vice president of Student Affairs, wrote in an email that the administration became aware of the incident over the weekend and USC’s policy forbids unauthorized access to rooftops and other restricted areas.

“To say that we are disappointed in this type of behavior does not begin to capture [the] seriousness with which we regard this type of activity,” Suite wrote. “While I cannot speak to specific actions which will be taken with any individual, suffice to say that this type of conduct cannot go unaddressed.”

Suite said events like this should remind members of the university to present themselves in public the way they wish to be seen.

“When we are out in public, you should ask yourself if you would be concerned if your family, friends, professors, and others see your actions,” Suite wrote. “If the answer is yes, then perhaps you should not be engaging in the behaviors.”

    I’m mostly pissed that all the doors to rooftops are now going to ACTUALLY be monitored by video rather than being guarded by pieces of paper falsely claiming video surveillance

    Since when do we expect the Greek Community to have manners ? I bet every building has secured its’ “easy access” to the rooftop. Talk about getting a ‘higher education!’ This gives new meaning to the WPH building, Women Prefer Heights.

    I think I am actually most disappointed by the Greek females in all of this. Most colleges across the US have guys who would do it on the roof of a building, but it takes a special breed of female to actually make it happen. USC sorority girls bring on their dirty reputation all on their own through their behaviour… Stereotypes about USC sorority girls aren’t necessarily stereotypes if they’re true.

    Regardless, all Greeks are despicable, especially the girls

    what ever happened to doing something like that at night so no one can see you? did they HAVE to pull a nooner on the roof? Really. I dont really care, and no one is in danger of being hurt or scarred by the this, but it is a really stupid move.

        Bella is an idiot. She posted in the comments thread of the other article about this story that she thought the girl in the photo was being anally raped. Apparently the concept of two people having consensual vaginal sex in public is incomprehensible to her (she also doesn’t seem to understand the mechanics of vaginal doggystyle sex).
