The house goes down

Well, it's official.
My fraternity just got kicked off campus.
Though I'm surprised that it didn't happen years earlier, it is still a very sad thing. Most of my best friends are ATOs, and we've shared many, many memories. Most which I will never fully remember.

The ATO Creed.
To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong as right itself, and as lasting as humanity; to know no north, no south, no east, no west, but to know man as man, to teach that true men the world over should stand together and contend for supremacy of good over evil; to teach not politics, but morals; to foster not partisanship, but the recognition of true merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world; these were the thoughts and hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.

- Otis Allan Glazebrook, 1880

The newer generation, getting too creative made some very dumb decisions. The last four paragraphs of this link roughly illustrate.
It's a damn shame isn't it?
