This week, students arriving at Old Dominion University could see banners hanging from a Sigma Nu fraternity house. "Rowdy and fun, hope your baby girl is ready for a good time," and "freshman daughter drop off." The signs were criticized for mocking sexual violence against women, and sparked national outrage.
