Cornell puts historically Jewish frat on probation over sexist ‘pig roast’ contest

(JTA) — An historically Jewish fraternity at Cornell University was placed on probation for two years following an investigation into a “pig roast” contest in which new members competed to see who could sleep with the heaviest women.

The Ivy League school’s Fraternity and Sorority Review Board last month concluded its investigation into the contest, which reportedly took place in 2017, and announced the suspension earlier this month of the Zeta Beta Tau chapter. Along with the probation, the fraternity will be required to participate in programs such as Sexual Assault Awareness Week, the Cornell Daily Sun reported.
