Outrage, but not surprise, as students learned what was allegedly happening behind closed doors in the TKE fraternity house. There had been rumors all along.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">\"The fact that it's been three years since I've known about it and this is the first time I'm hearing any results or allegations coming out to the public. I think that's a little ridiculous, and somebody should have stepped up and said something earlier,\" Zezulka said.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">\"I definitely like to think I'm more safe in what I do. But definitely the more you hear about it, the more you're a little bit cautious about the people that you're with,\" UWM student Courtney Krepline said.
