Yale’s Pi Phi Sorority Films The Rush Video To End All Rush Videos

We’re obsessed with unintentionally hilarious sorority girls here at The Frisky and the Pi Phi sorority at Yale soooo just became our new besties. If you remember, a few weeks ago we posted about Cornell’s Pi Phi sorority and their wackadoodle “fashion guidelines.” But Yale’s chipper chapter of Pi Phi ladies appear to be significantly less evil: Just watch their Pi Phi 2010 Fall Rush Video, which is loosely modeled on “Gossip Girl” and is inexplicably compelling. Seriously, it is worth watching for the entire seven-and-a-half minutes. [Guest Of A Guest] Keep reading »

The assistant headmaster of Bingley Grammar School told the Daily Mail it tweaked the dress code after some girls apparently rolled their skirts up higher and parents complained because “they felt their daughters were increasingly vulnerable.” All but the eldest girls in school are now required to wear black pants with their uniform instead.

    Police Think They’ve Found Missing Yale Student Annie Le’s Body

    New Haven police have discovered a body stuffed inside a wall at a lab in the School of Medicine where missing Yale student Annie Le was last seen alive on Tuesday. Although police are still waiting to identify the body, it’s fair to assume it’s probably Le. This weekend, bloody clothes were found stuffed in the ceiling of the lab as well. This horrible story is nothing short of tragic: Le had planned to marry her fiance, Jonathan Widawsky, a grad student at Columbia, this past weekend, and on Friday their families canceled the nuptials. Some had initially wondered if Le was a runaway bride, but all evidence indicated she was really excited to get married. Our thoughts go out to Widawsky and the couple’s families. [New York Times]

    UPDATE, 4:30 p.m. on Monday: This is beyond sad. As suspected, the body found in the walls of a Yale School Of Medicine lab belongs to Annie Le. Police are calling the cause of death a homicide. Although the murderer has not been identified, police say Le’s killing was targeted.—[NY Post] Additional reports say the suspect, who police confirm is not a fellow Yale student as previously reported, has flunked lie detector tests.—[NY Daily News] Keep reading »

    Is Annie Le, The Missing Yale Student, A Runaway Bride?

    Annie Le, a 24-year-old Yale grad student about to marry her Columbia University fiancée this weekend, has been missing since Tuesday. Le left behind her purse with her cell phone, credit cards and money, police in New Haven, Connecticut, say. On the day she went missing, Le used her Yale student ID at round 10 a.m. to check into a laboratory where she’s working on her doctorate in pharmacology. Police are checking security cameras to see if Le, who is 4’11″ and 90 lbs, was in the building when it was evacuated at around 1 p.m. during a fire alarm. Here’s hoping Le is just a runaway bride with cold feet and she turns up OK. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
