Students were brutalized by a fraternity “hazing” incident at Eastern Kentucky University.
Is the information that is circulating in fact true and if so what is the university administration doing about it.

I think it was Kappa Alpha Psi (aka Q-Dogs). It is an African American Fraternity. When I went to college at EKU they were in trouble for hazing and were not allowed to wear letters or assemble on campus.

I dated a couple of fraternity boys and they would talk about "hell week." I have also attended "paddle parties" where grown men actually got spanked by their big brothers. It was very hush hush.

I think the university and greek council are aware of some "hazing." I just think some frats take it a little over board. I know in some African American frats they get beat by other members. I was told this by a member of an African American frat.

too bad some bad fraternities ruin the public's image for the good ones that are actually benefiting the community.

Frats don't benefit anybody. They're a stupid waste of time.

I never had much use for the fraternities or sororities. I could have gotten into Theta Chi back in college if I had wanted to, but most of the guys I knew that were in Theta Chi were pricks. Isn't joining a frat or sorority kinda like buying your friends?

It sure is. I'd rather have friends that are real, not store-bought. And I've always had plenty.

its not paying for friends... its paying for experiences that you will never have or understand. fraternities do benefit people too. most members of my fraternity has seen a boost in their gpa since joining. we have also raised thousands of dollars to help better eku and richmond and helped to clean up the roads in the county.

You are right - I never had the experience of having to pay for friends.

Nobody asked you to do these things. It's nothing but a way of getting good publicity.

I outgrew boys clubs by the time I was ten.

It isn't the Q's -- you have the frat name correct but their nickname isn't Q's --- the Q's are Omega Psi Phi and they have nothing to do with this incident.
