Frat Hangs Offensive Banners as Freshmen Move In: 'Hope Your Baby is Ready For a Good Time'
It's move-in day at colleges across America - but at one, campus parents and their children were greeted with disturbing banners.
"Rowdy and fun: hope your baby girl is ready for a good time," read one banner that hung from a frat house just off campus from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. An uproar has ensued.

"Freshman daughter drop off" read another banner. "And go ahead and drop off mom too," declared a third.
Freshman Emma Gehring told INSIDE EDITION of the banners: "I was kind of astounded - like wow - that's completely inappropriate and very scary for some people, almost like, did I choose the right college?"
Her father said he was also horrified. Asked what he would say to the people who put those banners up, he told INSIDE EDITION, "Shame on you! It's just unacceptable."

The signs are especially offensive because experts say the first six weeks at college are a so-called "red zone," when new female students are most likely to be victimized.
The national Sigma Nu fraternity suspended the chapter, saying: "The faternity comdemns the derogatory and demeaning language used on the banners."
Old Dominion University Vice President Ellen Neufeldt said she was outraged. "It sickened me, it sickened our university. We find this unacceptable."
Some students posted a YouTube video about the banners, saying, "We ask that you join us in the fight to end sexual assault,” and “hold each other accountable.”
