After Fraternity And Sorority Weekend Party, Lake Shaste left behind in shambles


Lake Shasta in Northern California became the partying grounds for a fraternity and sorority trip last weekend which left the area in a state of total chaos. 

According to Fox News, the alleged perpetrators were said to be from the University of Oregon owing to the blatant indications left at the Slaughterhouse Island scene which composed of items with the university's emblem along with tampons, ice chests, condoms, sleeping bags and more than 90 tents - some of which were still left standing. Human wastes were also left alongside the yards and yards of trash.

The University of Oregon mentioned that they have begun their inquiry of the unsanctioned yet traditional merry-making pursuit of one of their student bodies.

University Vice President for Student Life Robin Holmes was in disbelief of the aftermath as he said that the act was highly scandalous as the national fraternity of Zeta Omicron Zeta had also issued a sanction to postpone all of the activities from its chapters while waiting for the issue to be fully resolved.

Another national fraternity with a local chapter at the University of Oregon, the Lambda Chi Alpha already made a public apology on their Facebook page, as one of the coolers left behind was emblazoned with their Greek letters alongside the words, "Do you wanna do some blow man?"

Their statement ended saying that despite still having no recognized perpetrators as of the moment, the fraternity has come across this blatant action against the environment intolerable.

A group of fraternities from the university have extended their hand to the United States Forest Service to help in the clean-up of Slaughterhouse Island. However, the local authorities have turned down the gesture as the Shasta Lake clutter is dealing with too much biohazard for the students to pitch in, according to Oregon Live.
