Many freshman dream of pledging a sorority when they enroll in college. Young girls want to be part of their favorite sorority and be part of a positive group. Many believe that after you pledge, the real college fun begins.
But that was not the case for a UC Berkeley student. Britteny Starling is suing Zeta Phi Beta sorority and many of its members for mistreatment during her pledging experience. She listed a variety of offenses that include being forced to pee her pants and being beaten by her “sisters.” She claims the “hazing” happened between the 2010-2011 school year.
Here is the full list of accusations:
beating her and another pledge repeatedly on the head until a third pledge could finish reciting the sorority’s history.
putting trash in her pocket and calling her “the trash can.”
pouring juice on the floor and making her clean it up with her back, then tearing her shirt off.
slamming her face into the wall, making her lip bleed profusely.
making her stay awake all night
hitting her in the ankle with a book.
pouring tea leaves all over her.
forbidding her from going to the bathroom, causing her to pee her pants.
Starling left school as a result of the intense hazing. She is seeking compensation for punitive damages and lost future wages. At this posting Zeta Phi Beta sorority hadn’t commented.
