A member of the Fiji confraternity, also known as the Phi Gamma Delta, raped a seventeen-year-old girl at the party. After that, he beat her up and threw her out of the house. The said member was later identified as Max Helm. After he threw his victim out, another girl who was passing by saw her and took her to the hospital. At this time, she was unconscious.
The news spread like wildfire and fellow students immediately staged a protest against the rapist and the entire Fiji confraternity. The protest then extended to social media and a good number of people started calling for the suspension of the frat. This was later granted.
