A month ago, an MIT student fell four stories at a fraternity party. Although he survived, officials in Boston have responded by shutting down all fraternity and sorority parties.
The student crashed through a skylight at an MIT fraternity house, when partiers were illegal on the house's roof. Despite the law-breaking by the particular fraternity, according to Boston.com, authorities decided to shut everything down.
Officials in Boston have placed an indefinite ban on parties and other large gatherings at MIT fraternities, sororities and other independent living groups that are located within the city.
The restrictions are draconian.
Until the city issues new inspection certificates for the Boston properties, they cannot host gatherings larger than the number of people who are legally permitted to live at each location.
Whatever MIT, you shouldn't be drinking anyway. So go home. Because you were drunk. Or something.
