Rice University in Houston, Texas, has canceled campus parties after spring break after an underwear and underwear-themed party ended up with seven students in the hospital.
The university’s student newspaper, the Rice Thresher, reported that the Night of Decadence party held at a residential college on campus was shut down early on Oct. 29 due to the presence of campus police and medics.
Night of Decadence is an underwear and lingerie-themed party at Rice University, according to FOX 26. It was discontinued this year after seven students were rushed to a nearby hospital due to intoxication.
More than a dozen people were treated at the scene.

Additionally, ‘Night of Decadence’ will be placed on probation, with reduced capacity and enhanced security protocols at future parties,” Falk said.
