Cornell fraternity put on probation after reports of engaging in sexual competition

New members of a male-only student society racked up points by having sex with unattractive women - with the victor decided by whose partner weighed the most.

A chapter of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity has been placed on probation at Cornell University following an investigation into an alleged sex game where new members competed to sleep with the heaviest women they could for 'points'.

In response to the allegations detailed yesterday in the Cornell Daily Sun, the brothers of the Kappa Chapter of Zeta...

The new members were told not to tell the women about the contest.

The "roast" was uncovered after Cornell's Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life (OSFL) investigated misconduct reports from 2017.

Members of the chapter will be on probation for two years, during which they will be subject to reviews, must undertake training programs on sexual violence, participate in events during the university's Sexual Assault Awareness Week and hire a live-in adviser.

Ryan Lombardi, vice president for student and campus life, said in a statement the school emailed to HuffPost on Wednesday that ZBT's actions were "abhorrent to me and antithetical to our values as a community". Their national organization will also be required to conduct an external review.

A statement posted on the Zeta Beta Tau at Cornell University Facebook page said and the chapter only became aware of the allegations in December.

The fraternity previously came under fire in January after its University of MI chapter was found to be in violation of rules regarding hazing, reports Detroit News.

It seems the scandal involving Cornell University's Zeta Beta Tau fraternity has finally come to an end.

"Your feelings are legitimate and appropriate reactions to something of this nature".

FRAT boys at one of America's top universities ran a "pig roast" contest to sleep with the most overweight girl.

"We, too, are in disbelief and even more so that these alleged actions may have been taken by those whom we called brothers".

The fraternity is planning on conducting a membership review to expel any members not committed to the fraternity's ideals.

"We intend to offer this programming to the entire community as we believe this is a message and area of concern that impacts the entire Cornell Community", the statement said.
