Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

San Diego State University: It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to say that Dylan Hernandez, the student who was hospitalized last week, has passed away. His family gave their goodbyes late Sunday night. The family has given the university permission today to share this information, and we are working to support them during this incredibly difficult time. As a mother, nothing can replace the profound loss of a child, and the devastating heartbreak the family and their loved ones are experiencing. All of us in the Aztec family are sending our prayers, and are here to support the family. Friends of the Hernandez family have established a GoFundMe page, which is accepting donations. So many within our campus community knew, studied with and cared for Dylan Hernandez. Members of Student Life & Leadership and therapists with Counseling & Psychological Services have been offering support to those directly and indirectly affected over the last several days. We will continue supporting our students, and also have support resources available for faculty and staff. The university has introduced a webpage, which will be updated as frequently as possible with additional information, including details about support services.

SDSU is a party school so this is not a surprise.

Used to be. Has done a decent job on shedding that association since I left in 2005.

Which begs the question of whether the school shedding it's party school reputation is causally related to your leaving in 2005. Just sayin...

"Has done a decent job on shedding that association since I left in 2005."

If you read President Adele or whatever's letter, it says 11 of the 14 frats or whatever were already on some sort of heightened scrutiny or whatever.

In other words, "Whatever!"

Not in the news because they likely weren't in Greek life, or attractive young women. Random GDIs dying apparently isn't newsworthy

SDSU guy was a Phi Delt,
Never heard of them. Sorry to hear about the loss to his family and the university community. Multiple institutional failures let him down.

Greek life isn't the same on the west coast. No history or legacy for members inspire members to be responsible and act to protect their charters.
