Reed College is investigating a complaint that an annual student tradition -- sometimes involving nudity -- violated Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 by creating a hostile environment for women, The Oregonian reported. The tradition involves juniors and seniors greeting freshmen as they prepare to start a required humanities course. The juniors and seniors dress as gods and demand "libations" (typically coffee) in return for wishing the new students luck in the course. Some of the juniors and seniors this year were apparently naked, and the nudity led to the complaint.
