Didn’t want to continue the betta sorority thread on that post specifically (mostly because I didn’t want to subject OP to my opinions since I’m sure the hurt from the sorority loss is very raw right now).

I think that sororities probably ARE more susceptible to illness because:

  1. Any fin nipping could become infected, same with any fighting, and I’m wondering if one infection outbreak of a bacteria affecting a fish can affect others in the tank?
  2. The fish are more stressed, there’s NO WAY bettas AREN’T more stressed in a sorority, and when fish are at higher stress levels their immune systems are affected so it’d be easier for illness to slam through all of them quickly.

I think stress is probably the most likely answer, truth be told.

After a student death, West Virginia University becomes the latest school to suspend all Greek life

In the most recent incident, an 18-year-old student was in critical condition Thursday after collapsing at the Kappa Sigma house. According to NBC News, when emergency personnel arrived, the male student wasn’t breathing and did not have a pulse. NBC reported Friday afternoon that the student had died.

That wasn’t the only incident, though.

How Many Bobs Can Fit in One Photograph?

The ladies of Sigma Kappa yearned to find out. The sorority was founded in 1919 and dormant by 1958. This photo catches them sporting their finest ‘dos in 1933. Can you spot the gal with the Harry Potter specs?
