University of Virginia student details alleged gang rape by seven men during a fraternity initiation

And claims the school did nothing about it

One of University of Virginia's most illustrious fraternities is now under investigation amid reports seven members gang-raped a female student in the house two years ago.

The horrifying account was detailed in a recently-published Rolling Stone article, in which a current junior identified as 'Jackie' says she was assaulted by a group of Phi Kappa Psi brothers after accepting an invitation to a 'date night' function at the house.

The article goes on to indict the southern school for hushing up victims like Jackie, steering them towards dealing with these cases within the school, in order to protect their reputation.

The Charlottesville, Virginia school was also attended by Hannah Graham, the 18-year-old student who was kidnapped on campus last September and found murdered weeks later.

While Jackie decided not to press charges when the incident first happened, she has now decided to go public with her story after hearing from two other women who were gang raped at the fraternity, which counts President Woodrow Wilson as one of their distinguished alumni.
