New Rules At UVA Greek Houses

It’s a different type of January for University of Virginia students on Rugby Road, Grady and Gordon Avenues, and Madison Lane. Wahoos are beginning their spring semester with more stringent rules for fraternities, such as these houses in the 100 block of Rugby Road (pictured).

Greek houses have new rules that are designed to make party weekends safer for fraternity members and their guests. That follows UVA President Teresa Sullivan’s late November suspension of social functions at frat houses. The suspension has now been lifted. Sullivan’s actions came in the wake of a November 19th article in Rolling Stone magazine that featured allegations by a female student named Jackie. She told a writer for Rolling Stone she was sexually assaulted in a Madison Lane fraternity. The magazine apologized last month for discrepancies in the article.
