Another day, another fraternity suspended.
The Sigma Chi chapter at Radford University has been suspended for what school administrators call “possible misconduct.” As a result of the suspension, members of the school’s Sigma Chi chapter will not be able to participate in group activities as a chapter.
According to Joe Carpenter, a spokesman for the university, the allegations are of a “serious nature,” however, he declined to comment on the specifics of the allegations. He also declined to acknowledge whether hazing was involved or not.
Furthermore, Jenni Wilder, a spokesperson for the city of Radford, Virginia, said the city police department is assisting university police with an investigation.
This is not the first time that the Sigma Chi at Radford has been in hot water.
A decade ago, in 2007, they were suspended due to hazing allegations. Then two years later, the chapter was placed on probation for two years after serving alcohol to minors.
