Purged sorority itself purged

That sorority that threw out a bunch of its ethnic minority and insufficiently thin members in an effort to bolster its own popularity has itself been thrown out of DePauw University:

“The arrangement we have with Greek organizations is that they’re guests of ours and we expect them to live up to university standards, and in this case Delta Zeta did not,” Dr. Bottoms said. “This means that sorority can’t exist on our campus as an organization beginning in the fall.”

Robert P. Hershberger, the chairman of DePauw’s modern languages department, who earlier this year circulated a faculty petition criticizing Delta Zeta’s treatment of the women, said yesterday in an interview: “This was the right thing to do. I doubt there will be many people here upset about this.”

Hey Delta Zeta, exclusivity cuts both ways.
