Dallas, TX– Following the discovery of two girls, passed out in their showers, the University of Texas Deans of Students Office has subsequently launched an investigation into the incidents. The two girls had reportedly participated in pledging activities for a sorority prior to being found unconscious, as reported KVUE.
