The suspension on all of Ball State University’s fraternity parties, mixers, and social events has ended, according to university officials.
Previously, all of the school’s 13 fraternities were barred from hosting any social events after a “pattern of different types of events not consistent with Ball State’s standards,” such as reported sexual assaults and alcohol issues. The decision to suspend was made by the university in October 2017.
According to The Indy Channel, during the three months, the fraternities were suspended, active members of the organizations attended training sessions about their behavior.
While none of the Ball State fraternities closed, at least seven fraternities in the state of Indiana have closed since 2005.
Ball State University is a public coeducational research university in Muncie, Indiana, United States, with two satellite facilities in Fishers and Indianapolis. On July 25, 1917, the Ball brothers, industrialists and founders of the Ball Corporation, acquired the foreclosed Indiana Normal Institute for $35,100 and gifted the school and surrounding land to the State of Indiana.
