By: | May 17, 2021

Officials at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, condemned a “horrific” incident in which LGBTQ students were harassed at an affinity house last week, the school said.

The incident took place Thursday at Tower House: Fran’s House, an affinity house that provides LGBTQ-friendly, gender-neutral housing for Bucknell students.

In a letter released Friday, university President John Bravman, Provost Elisabeth Mermann-Jozwiak and Nikki Young, the associate provost for equity and inclusive excellence, said a group of male students approached the residence, which formerly housed Tau Kappa Epsilon, a fraternity no longer recognized by the school.

It said “these men allegedly harassed and intimidated the residents of Tower House while attempting to enter the building.”
