Interfraternity Council leadership reminded presidents during their annual retreat that last year’s social prohibition on The Row still stands, IFC President Pat Lauer said.Party off · The social prohibition placed on Interfraternity Council member fraternities remains from a string of events in 2010-2011. – Carlo Acenas | Daily TrojanLauer reminded presidents of the ban at their retreat Aug. 6 and Aug. 7.“We heard from the administration that if there were any incidents like there were last year it would jeopardize having recruitment altogether,” Lauer said. “We all decided that we didn’t want that to happen.”What the university community has generally called “Pre-Rush” parties, which take place before recruitment, are not allowed this semester because they take place on weekday nights, prohibited by the current ban.Lauer said no exact date had been set to lift the ban, nor had specific provisions for lifting the ban been set. He said he heard that the ban would be lifted around the first week of September.“We’re still working with the vice president’s office to see what we have to do on our part to ensure that social events are safe,” Lauer said. “We want to start the first weeks off with no alcoholic incidents.”Vice President of Student Affairs Michael L. Jackson placed The Row on social prohibition in April for the second time during the 2010-2011 school year after several negative events took place within the Greek community.Last year, a misogynistic email sent on the Kappa Sigma fraternity listserv and photos of a suspended Kappa Sigma appearing to have sex on a USC rooftop spread virally.The Row was first shut down Aug. 30, after 16 IFC chapters were cited for prohibited parties. Eight students were taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning.The ban was lifted two weeks later after all 16 fraternities met with the Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards committee and agreed to enforce rules that had been violated that Monday.Fraternities agreed not to let alcoholic beverages outside the house, have large groups of people congregate or play loud music. Sorority presidents signed a letter about preventing irresponsible drinking.
