MTV denied permission to film on campus at USC for Sorority Life 3.
The University of Southern California denied MTV’s request to film on campus as part of Sorority Life 3, which is following USC’s Zeta Sigma Phi sorority. The reason cited was a policy “we don’t do reality shows,” according to The Daily Trojan. The paper also reports that USC’s Office of Residential and Greek Life met with the sorority about the filming of the show; the office’s director said, “We in the university, not just (ORGL), are concerned based on other reality shows and what may emerge after editing.”
