SDSU Redefines "Party School"

Ninety-six people -- 75 of them San Diego State students -- were arrested this week following a months-long undercover drug investigation on the California campus. Six fraternities have been suspended and all arrested students have been barred from campus until their cases are reviewed.

Police seized two kilos of coke, 350 Ecstasy pills, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, hash oil, methamphetamine, illicit prescription drugs, several guns and at least $60,000 in cash. Authorities allege some frat members openly dealt drugs out of their frat houses.

How openly? Well...

One Theta Chi fraternity member apparently sent a mass text message advertising special "sale" prices on cocaine since he was going to be out of town in Vegas one weekend.

Nice going, Scarface.

According to the AP story linked above, drug sale profits may have been used to finance fraternity operations. Yeah, hey, clue #1: when the frat party you go to is catered by Wolfgang Puck and the kegs are anything but the cheapest available beer, something is going on.

Among those busted were a student who was about to receive a criminal justice degree and another who was to receive a master's degree in homeland security.

And here's the kicker: one of them asked the cops who busted him if "his arrest and incarceration would have an effect on him becoming a federal law enforcement officer."

Gee, you think?

But my favorite quote comes from Theta Chi's national director who had this to say when he learned about a number of students from the SDSU chapter being arrested in the raid, "They were on the upswing. They had improved their recruitment. They were trying to raise money for a new house."

Oh, I bet recruitment was improving. And nothing like tens of thousands in drug sales to ugrade from the usual urine-smelling frat house to something more befitting Tony Montana.

That may be true. He should just run for president instead.

As an alumnus of that school I feel the shame that you could only feel after a night of partying you wake up the next morning and find a naked woman sleeping next to you...

...who outweighs you by 200 pounds.

Well ... isn't it called "higher education" for a reason?

Oh the hypocrisy kills me. UM fans talk on and on about their academics and then slam on some SDSU students doing a little extracurricular research in their fields of study. Of course I should have expected considering how up in arms you got when Tressel offered to help train the Columbus Bomb Squad.

For shame Michigan, for shame.

Top ten reasons SDSU Theta Chi is the most popular fraternity on campus:
10. Their garage sales are like going to a Walgreens pharmacy.
9. The beautiful greenery growing on the lawn isn’t regular grass.
8. Pledges get free road trips to Colombia
7. Members get their own drug sniffing dog so they can always find their stash.
6. You can get a Money Laundering degree from the fraternity
5. The fraternity can get you a summer job earning $400,000.
4. Robert Downey Jr. is your frat president.
3. Your annual fraternity budget is around 19 million dollars.
2. Many of your frat brothers are featured in the Grand Theft Auto game series.
1. As a Theta Chi, you may never graduate, but you are so “Mello” you could care less.

Just recently near me at the airfield owned by Kent State there was a bust of about 30 kilos of Coke on a plane. Who knows how long they may have been running that operation. I don't know if it was a student or anything since the airport is open to the public as well. Good to see them crack down on this shit.
