Bros Behaving Badly: Tulane's Kappa Sigma Frat Suspended After Drug Bust, Newspaper Theft


A pair of Tulane frat house antics were deemed unpledgeworthy by the frat's big brothers. First, a Feb. 21 federal drug bust at the Kappa Sigma house put $10,000 worth of drugs on ice. Then, two of the brotherhood's pledges confessed to stealing more than 2,000 copies of the university’s student newspaper splashed with the headline hours after its Thursday afternoon publication, according to the Tulane Hullabaloo. As a result of the incidents, the frat is under investigation, according to Kappa Sigma national overseers.


Tulane Students Seek Sugar Daddies


Last week, Tulane University moved up to #50 on U.S. News and World Report’s annual ranking of national universities. But when it comes to finding a sugar daddy, the Uptown institution ranks much higher. A website called Seeking Arrangement matches wealthy, mature users with “sugar babies,” younger, presumably attractive users who seek to benefit financially by spending time with their older counterparts. In a front page article in the Hullabaloo, Tulane’s student-run newspaper, Jessica Applebaum reports that Tulane ranks at #20 among registered user with .edu email addresses.
