ZBT allowed to remain on campus

But the chapter's request for an appeal last month was
granted on the basis of new evidence. The new evidence
consisted of an admission of hazing, changes to the chap-
ter's membership and sanctions imposed on the chapter by
its national organization.
"We've accepted responsibility or (the hazing incident)
and weve chosen to govern ourselves and take care of the
problem internally, said LSA sophomore Israel Nosnik,
who became president of the ZBT chapter in April.
Former ZBT chapter President Barry Garfinkle declined
to comment on the hazing allegations but compared the
expulsions to the hearings by Sen. Joseph McCarthy of
accused communists in the 1950s.
"I'm appalled with the manner in j4AI
which my brothers were expelled" Wve d
Garfinkle said.t
Through a complete membership th
review, the ZBT national organization around Y
expelled all but one of the active mem- "
bers who had formerly been members of
the campus Phi Delta Theta fraternity Zeta
chapter. Zet
IFC expelled the Phi Delt chapter in
1998 following an investigation into the death of University
student Courtney Cantor, who died after falling from her
sixth-floor Mary Markley Residence Hall window after
consuming alcohol at the fraternity.
Nine of the 10 Phi Delts who were charged with misde-
meanor alcohol violations in connection with Cantors death
later became active ZBT members.
"Had they not expelled the former Phi Felts, the appeal
would never have been granted. They are the root of the
problem' "Hustvedt said.
The only former Phi Dell member not expelled from
ZBT was an upperclassman who had been abroad when the
hazing incidents occurred last year.
"We felt that we cut out the problem,' ZBT National
Executive Director John Yulish said. "The guys who are
here are freshmen. They are the guys who were getting
hazed last year."
Nosnik said the elimination of a large portion of ZBT's
membership sets a new standard for current members. "I
think that by not having them, we are able to set a new prece-

dent of no pledging and no hazing in the house," Nosnik said.
As a part of the appeal ruling to change the sanctions rec-
ommended by the national organization, the chapter has
changed status to a probationary colony. The terms of pro-
bation are classified under three sections.- social, brother-
hood development and chapter operations.
Under social probation, the colony will be allowed only
one social event per weekend and no expelled ZBT mem-
bers will be permitted to attend functions. The colony will
also be required to uphold its national organization's ruling
that all new members will be initiated into the fraternity
within 72 hours of receiving a bid, thus eliminating any
pledge period.
One member of the house said the problems of last year
are over. "The negative externalities (of hazing) were too
large in comparison to the small posi-

tives that it wasn't worth it," said LSA
sophomore Jason Kosson, one of last
year's pledges who endured hazing.
"Nothing positive came of it.
Kosson said he did not know why no
one came forward to stop what was
going on. "We just decided to take the
blame and stick it out," he said, but
added that "definitely we've decided to

turn the house around"
In addition to the social probation, ZBT will also be forced
to report its operations to IFC every other week with a
detailed account of the colony's activities. All new members
will be required to sign a statement claiming they know about
the sanctions imposed on the fraternity and that they will
abide by those sanctions. The statements will then be
processed by IFC.
ZBT's probationary period will last through this semester
and be reviewed by I FC at the end of the year.
"They may participate actively in recruitment, philanthropy,
new member convocation, Greek Week and intramural sports.
These are all positive aspects of Greek life that we want to see
them involved in as much as possible," Hustvedt said.
ZBT's national organization also has put its own sanc-
tions on the colony. These sanctions include a mandatory 10
hours of community service per active member and require
the colony to absorb the cost of bringing in a national mem-
ber to help with education.
"We've got good guys now who are willing to follow the
rules," Nosnik said.
