Students in Trouble for Swearing 'Alliance to Radnor Over a Keg,' Other Antics
Residents of a local college dormitory got a scathing letter from the Dean.
The controversy centers around an optional, school-sanctioned Bryn Mawr tradition called "Hell Week," in which participating freshman are lightly teased by participating sophomores and then thrown a party by participating juniors, the Web site reports.
Amongst the infractions listed by the dean are:
- "Requiring first-year students to swear alliance to Radnor over a keg"
- "Shouting at first-year students with and without bullhorn."
- "Throwing items in common room (toilet paper, cardboard). Some items thrown into audience (may have been at first-year students)."
- "Requiring first-year students to go outside for a "class photo" but in reality dumping water on them. (Unclear if a photo was really taken.)"
- "Telling first-year students to stand outside, wet and some without shoes, and forcing them to listen to the Radnor goddess speech."
