Interesting that these Stanford associated parents, knowing that their child had a history of serious substance abuse problems, didn’t pull him from school and his fraternity and get him into treatment. Did they not know?

Even in late 60s early 70s when I was in college, fraternities were a hub of alcohol, drugs, and sex. I wanted nothing to do with them or their members. I guess some students enjoy being a part of a tribe. Surprising that fraternities and sororities are still part of university life.
