"I solemnly swear to always have hatred in my heart for n*ggers, sp*cs and most importantly the f*ckin' k*kes", the member on his knees recites after having his "pledge" dictated by another member who is standing.
Each semester our new members are given the opportunity to write and act out a skit, in order to roast the active brothers.
In another video, a member sits down in a rolling chair and a person off-camera shouts, "He's drooling out of his mouth because he's retarded in a wheelchair".
Yankowy, an engineering student who uploaded several videos to the secret page before administrators were made aware of the existence of the hateful material, was listed as a member of Syracuse's chapter of Theta Tau before the website went offline Wednesday, the Orange reports.
Syverud said that the videos were turned over the school's Department of Public Safety and that the students involved may face disciplinary or legal action.

Protesters at New York's Syracuse University have demanded that the school release videos showing racist and sexist behavior by members of a now-suspended fraternity.
The Theta Tau chapter apologized in a lengthy statement, but emphasized that it is important to understand the video's "context". They chanted "release the video" and "we're exhausted of being sick and exhausted".
Both the local chapter of Theta Tau and the national organization have issued statements regarding the controversial video.
Last night, a protest was organized asking for the other videos to be released and for "accountability".
Students are holding a sit-in this morning at the Schine Student Center on campus.
"Earlier today, the University learned of extremely troubling and disturbing conduct at one of our professional fraternity chapters, Theta Tau", the email said per Refinery29.
"We would like to believe that the new members seen in the video laughing at the disgusting things being said were not laughing in concurrence with these beliefs, but in fact the opposite - that racism, sexism and homophobia are so wrong that they are laughable", the statement read.
