VANCOUVER - Offensive FROSH chants at the University of B.C. were supposed to be building brotherhood, community and allowing students to “come out of their shell,” a new report states.

On Wednesday, the school administration announced it had concluded interviews with 62 students and four staff members, determining the chants — which included a line about underage sex without consent — were an “oral tradition” used during bus trips.

The report quoted students calling the chants a “really bad offensive joke,” or an attempt to be “shockingly funny.”
