[Ed. – What, are we going to have the “fraternity gross-out of the week” now? America has nothing better to do?]
Old Dominion University officials took time from their weekend to respond to some banners hung up at an off-campus home that are upsetting many.
“At ODU, we foster a community of respect and dignity and these messages sickened us,” said ODU spokeswoman Giovanna Genard in a statement provided to NewsChannel 3.
The signs displayed at a home on 43rd street had messages like:
- “Rowdy and Fun. Hope your baby girl is ready for a good time.”
- “Freshman daughter drop off.”
- “Go ahead and drop off mom too.”
Now the Sigma Nu Fraternity has suspended the Eta Chi Chapter at ODU pending an investigation into the banners.
Sigma Nu released a message stating their displeasure with the banners saying they condemn the “derogatory and demeaning language used on the banners.”
