"The Centre County District Attorney late Friday re-filed involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault charges against eight members of a Penn State fraternity accused in the alleged hazing death of a sophomore pledge last February."
They're technically compatible, but it would be interesting to find out how many in CBH go on to complete the STEM Path to MBA. Those CBHers are rock stars by and large, and many are admitted to very prestigious doctoral programs after they earn their degrees.
@CAtoGAMom, I can't speak to the differences between the partying at UA and that of AU, but they're both in the SEC, where football is a big deal and everything that goes along with it.
In my experience, I think partying pretty much takes place at any large school - it did when I attended Penn 35 years ago (bad football!) and certainly did at Penn State (good football!) when my sister was a student there. (Both unis have excellent engineering programs FWIW.) And I'm guessing, with the exception of UCSD, there's a lot of partying at UCs too.
Certainly, nobody is obligated to participate!
(And I'm not going to claim that my kid never parties, but it hasn't affected his GPA. :) )
