Sigma Chi Fraternity Suspended Indefinitely

Sigma Chi Fraternity is in hot water again. They're accused of providing alcohol to minors while they were already on probation.

This fraternity was just allowed back on campus this fall and it didn't take long to get back into trouble.

In April 2009, multiple members were cited for supplying alcohol to minors and hazing after allegedly having a stripper sexually assault a blind–folded freshman.  Since their first suspension, they've gotten rid of 60 percent of their membership and tried for a fresh start.

This fall, they were allowed back on campus, under probation.  Just a few months in, three members were sited for supplying alcohol to minors at an off–campus event.

We spoke to a Sigma Chi alumni who says this is disappointing.

"Frankly, we're all shocked.  There's a sense of betrayal, disappointment and it's really a sad situation for those who have gone through there and called this place our home," Sigma Chi Alumni and Spokesman J. Steve Davis said. 

The University has suspended the fraternity indefinitely, making an example out of Sigma Chi.

"We're trying to give a message, not just to them, but to all student groups on campus that we will not tolerate unsafe behavior among any group and so we will hold them to a high standard and that's what we're gonna do," Vice Provost for Student Success Juan Franco said. 

The University, with help from Sigma Chi Nationals, will decide what "indefinite suspension" will mean and for how many years they will remain off campus.

In the mean time, freshmen will be relocated to university housing and no one else will be allowed to live in the residence after next week.
