KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A committee at the University of Tennessee has proposed remedies for rowdiness that made the campus the subject of late-night TV comedy.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported the committee's recommendations include fulltime directors living in fraternity houses, amnesty for drunken students and their friends when seeking medical help and the online posting of sanctions against fraternities and sororities.
The 11-page report released Thursday comes nearly six months after a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity member was brought to UT Hospital dangerously drunk. Police reports blamed the incident on a wine enema, which garnered national attention.
That chapter and, later, the Phi Gamma Delta chapter have shut down at UT.
