Purdue Suspends Fraternity For Violations


(Purdue University)

A Purdue University fraternity is being forced to close for the remainder of the school year for hazing activities and underage drinking.  

Beta Theta Pi was under investigation after the university received complaints.

"This is a strong message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated," said Jeff Stefancic, associate dean of students. "We expect responsible conduct from all of our fraternities and sororities, and we will act when necessary. The fraternity can regain its good standing with the university, and we will work with Beta alumni and their General Fraternity in order to do so."

In addition to the university sanctions, all members will move out of the house by the end of the current semester and be moved to an "alumni status" within the organization.
