As your trusted authority on Penn rumors, we at Highbrow will catch you up on some classic stories and help you separate the fact from the crap.
Zete Pledging aka #onepercentproblems: Rumor has it that pledging Zete includes being forced to buy a first class ticket to China and destroying it, promising 5% of your income for the rest of your life to the fraternity and, on the bright side, a trip to Puerto Rico on a private jet.
Truth Meter: We have it on good authority that Zete boys take their little trip to PR every year, but we can’t imagine the other two money–squandering tidbits are true.
How ZBT Became OZ: In 2004, ZBT got kicked off campus and later formed OZ after several bizarre incidents, including keeping a stripper in the basement as a pet and dropping a kitten wearing a parachute off one of the highrises. The stripper was well–fed and released and the kitten survived, but OFSA was obviously displeased.
Truth Meter: We’re not all too sure. The official story is that alcohol–related incidents were the final straw for ZBT, but OZ would be way more interesting if this were the real deal.
