I was going to say Duquesne hasn't changed a bit since I was there in the 1970's, but that isn't exactly true. Nobody died from alcohol or drugs the whole four years I was there. It seems Duquesne is recently averaging about a death a year according to recent news reports. I find her mother's comment at the end of the article ironic. The reason it was such a good fit was because this girl obviously loved her social life. She loved Duquesne alright. Not to be cruel, but, she literally loved Duquesne to death.

I am Meredith's roommate, the Kate who is mentioned above on this page. I am just wondering whose website this is? You don't know the feeling of googling DUQUESNE and finding post after post from strangers about your best friend. Please respond.

I went to Duquesne too. The lambs were always out of control. It's no wonder they finally lost their charter!!! And it's no coincidence that this girl was a lamb.

This is the message I sent to Kate:

====================
Kate, I am very sorry for your loss.

You visited my blog

I have been chronicling the change in alcohol use among college kids, leading to death, since last fall when an acquaintance's child died.

Why?

""There's no place that's actually keeping data on alcohol deaths"--Thomas Kunstman MD"

Meredith was the 8th underaged person to die of alcohol poisoning in 2005.

What is really sad is I know:
1. There are probably twice as many deaths -- if not more -- that aren't reported (I track them through Google news reports)

2. Meredith's death was completely preventable

3. There will be many more children who die needlessly.

C.S.

I was a Lamb in the early 90's. The "sisters" were very stuck-up and even mean to each other. Trying to intidate the pledges was standard protocol, and it even continued after initiation. It's a true shame what happened to this girl, for whatever reason. But I can't help thinking if this might have been another one of the kinder sororities on DU's campus, this might not have happened.

DU

To "C.S.", I too was a greek at DU and knew the Lambs well. After reading your post, I very much doubt you were a Lamb. Yes, the Lambs were very tough on their pledges...when they were pledges, not as sisters. And because they were so hard on their pledges is what made their sisterhood so strong. I'll call you out as phony.
