MTV crew shooting at UC Santa Cruz for possible Fraternity Life 2.
An MTV crew is at UC Santa Cruz this week, filming Delta Omega Chi’s rush activities for a possible second season of Fraternity Life. “If MTV producers decide the frat is series-worthy, a crew will film the entire quarter, then edit the footage to air in the fall,” the Santa Cruz Sentinel reports.
