WSU sorority punished over urination incident

PULLMAN — Washington State University officials plan to discipline a sorority for an incident last weekend in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, that involved students urinating in a city park in front of families.

The Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority will be charged with violations of the university’s standards of conduct as a result of Saturday’s incident, which occurred during a sorority-sponsored event.

The university received complaints from a Coeur d’ Alene resident who reported that drunk students were observed exiting a chartered bus and urinating in public in the park.

School officials say their review found the sorority had sponsored a cruise on Lake Coeur d’Alene and chartered the buses students exited during the incident.

If students are ultimately found responsible, they face a variety of punishments ranging from warnings to expulsion.
