SAE Struggled With Frat Culture for Years

The troubled fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon struggled for years with the high financial costs of dangerous behavior at its chapters around the U.S. — even before members were expelled from the University of Oklahoma for singing a racist frat song, NBC News reported. Three years ago, fraternity leaders launched a damage-control campaign to help curb its crippling insurance costs related to the deaths of three pledges, a fatal drunk-driving accident, a member killed by a car after passing out drunk in the street, and serious injuries to female party guests. Although the fraternity has implemented sweeping reforms, it has still struggled with issues related to binge drinking, hazing, sexual assault and now racism.
