Incoming freshmen at the University of Colorado will no longer be able to take part in ``rush'' during the fall semester -- and may even have to wait until their sophomore year.
CU--Boulder Chancellor Richard Byyny announced the policy change yesterday during a meeting with university faculty members.
The announcement comes about a week-and-a-half after the death of Dallas freshman Lynn Gordon Bailey. The Chi Psi fraternity pledge was found dead at the organization's house September 17th.
Police say Bailey and other pledges were drinking heavily the night before his body was discovered. His official cause of death hasn't been released.
Byyny says he believes it's a good idea that incoming students not have to feel the pressure of rush and pledging fraternities and sororities during the first part of their college experience.
