    Check out this article on CNN.

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/09/23/stripper.pole.ap/index.html

    Basically these students had one installed and had a contest with girls on it. I take my hat off to these guys, because I had the same idea for myself. This will be the first addition I make to the frat house I get into, I'll even pay for it myself. I just feel a stripper is such a nice addition to any room, especially in college, too bad they got in trouble.

    Well, they were pretty stupid.
    You don't do stuff like that in university housing, and you don't advertise big parties happening in your on campus housing (which is why frats have bigger/better parties,because they arent on the university).

    Most frats are on campus, just not owned by the campus, so you can what you want. But they university can kick you off campus and then your screwed.

    I really don't even see the big deal. They even checked ID.

    Gotta love the "It degrades women" line...

    ... it takes a woman to dance on there to be degraded. Its not like anybody forced them to do it. That advisor woman should just sod off. And no, they didn't want g/fs they just wanted to see some hot chicks shake it and have a good time. I hope she says it degrades men next time she goes and watches the chippendales shake it.
    Cheers,

    Ahmed

    College age students seem to do stupid things. At least this idea wasn't a life threatening one. From what I have heard about dancing today the pole dancing probably wasn't any worse than at many dance. In the is girls were just on the pole and not with a guy.

    I think the reason they got in trouble was because they charged for admission.

    The punishment seems to fit what they did just fine.
    They made an unauthorized modification to an on-campus apartment, and possibly violated the school's alcohol policy. That's the kind of stuff you don't **** around with.

    Being 'forced' to perform an activity is not the only way a person can be degraded. Offering pecuniary gains for actions that person would not otherwise ordinarily do is degrading.

    Sorry.

    There was no promise of financial gains, its was a contest, so is that degrading? I figure most of the girls would have done it anyway.

    Nothing beat the parties we held at 'Schlag when I was a freshman. People left frat parties to party with us.

    This quote sums it up for me:

    Its obviously not about the dancing....although it makes sense the university put a stop to it. Eventually something stupid would have happened. As it is, they all get a bit of fame and notoriety at campus - not a bad thing.

    D :D

    Next they'll be putting up signs all over campus: HOT PING PONG PLAYERS NEEDED, promising a $100 gift certificate at Old Navy.

    The most ridiculous thing is that it's getting national attention, when it's clearly a local-level news item.

    Degrading?

    It appears to me that these girls were having something known as "a fun time"...

    Punish them for the alcohol violation and room modification if they must, but the "pole dancing" should not be a problem at all...
