fraternity banned forever after UCSC finds it was involved in fish killing.
Delta Omega Chi’s charter has been permanently revoked by UC Santa Cruz after an investigation found “that members of the organization were involved in the removal of the fish from the pond and its death,” according to the director of UCSC’s Student Judicial Affairs Office.

We are meeting with our lawyers.” The paper reports that the action came right after MTV finished filming Fraternity Life 2 at the fraternity.
