Pi Kappa Alpha, a fraternity at Columbia University, is catching a fair bit of scrutiny over a scavenger hunt list that the group purportedly created. The document has been particularly eyebrow-raising over its inclusion of some bizarre requests the frat's brothers apparently outlined for aspiring members.

From asking participants to nab shoes from homeless men to rewarding points for explicit sex acts, the list has no shortage of contentious inclusions. According to New York Magazine, the document was initially recovered by Bwog, a blog associated with Columbia University's undergraduate magazine. 

The paper was apparently left next to a library printer on campus, which led to its publication on the blog as well as in numerous national media outlets.

It outlines a points system, offering a range of accolades for various activities. While some of the items are more benign -- even positive -- like planting a flag at the 9/11 memorial (worth 10 points) or riding the Wall Street bull (worth five points), others are certainly less-than-positive.

Here are just a few selections from the list:

Piss on church of Scientology (minimum 1 picture): 5 points

Picture of a homeless person burning money: 5 points

Video of pledges piggy-back racing on fat girls: 10 points

Homeless man's shoe: 10 points

None of these examples include the sexually-explicit content that was placed throughout the list. The fraternity, at least according to the document, also offered points for panties, bras and pornography.

Additionally, one of the options for submission was a recorded video showing a pledge engaging in a sexual act (this was worth 25 points). Cosmo called this particular element "winner for most appalling pledge assignment."

While some might dismiss the activity as innocent fun, but Business Insider notes that college campuses consider these activities to be a form of hazing -- something that could land a frat like Pi Kappa Alpha in hot water (although, that would depend on Columbia's rules and further details surrounding just how widespread this list was).

The Bwog blog initially posted the document with the headline, "Not-So Good Will Hunting." You can see the entire list of scavenger items (caution: graphichere.
