Penn State students to protest over frat nude photo postings

    Penn State University students plan to demonstrate against a fraternity accused of posting photos of nude or partly nude women, some asleep or passed out, on an invitation-only Facebook page.

    Organizers say the protest scheduled for noon Friday at the State College campus is designed to show support for the victims and urge the university administration to take stronger action.

    The State College chapter of Kappa Delta Rho has already been suspended a year by its national organization while a review is under way.

    The university is also assisting police in their investigation. Police have identified at least two photos they say could result in criminal charges.

    Penn State president Eric Barron said in a statement to the college community that it may be time to re-evaluate the entire fraternity system.
