Bucknell University in Pennsylvania is investigating a crowd of former frat boys after students who live in an LGBTQ home on campus complained about harassment, BuzzFeed News reported.
Tyler Luong, a housing counselor for the LGBTQ home known as Fran's House, said around 13 former members of the Tau Kappa Epsilon brotherhood tried to break into the apartment on May 13.
The male students shouted, "Let us in," "this is not your home," and "this is our home," as they knocked on the building's windows and doors, exposing themselves to a resident, and urinating on the porch. According to a letter to the president of the university, John Bravman.
The former members of the brotherhood are also accused of "swinging a metal pole on our flagpole with our pride flag depicted," the letter said.

Fran's House is "LGBT-friendly, gender-neutral living" on Bucknell's campus and is described as a "safe place for LGBT people and allies at all times" according to a Facebook page.
Before that, it was Tau Kappa Epsilon's fraternity house until two years ago the university booked it out on allegations of brutal clouding rituals.
Luong claims that the harassment was initially neglected by campus public security officials.
"When public security arrived, they laughed at the situation," wrote the student. "President Bravman, the officers have linked up with our perpetrators, remembering their college days and calling them handsome young men. President Bravman, the two officers haven't even spoken to me," Luong added.
Bravman and other university officials condemned the "terrible incident", saying that it "will not be tolerated in an official response to the incident."
The letter acknowledged a "missing" response from Brucknell public security officers. This will be investigated in an investigation by an external company, it said.
An outside company will also conduct an immediate investigation into the incident and the resulting penalties for the ex-frat boys.
"We can't erase the ugliness and subsequent trauma of last night's transgression against the students at Fran's house and, implicitly, against many others, but we can commit to doing it so that LGBTQ Bucknellians are protected and their safety bettered in the future guaranteed. " the letter closed.
