MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP/KDKA) – A fraternity has revoked its chapter at West Virginia University, citing multiple violations of alcohol and risk management policies.
WBOY-TV reports the national Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity’s board of directors unanimously voted to revoke the WVU Beta chapter’s charter following an investigation.
SigEp CEO Brian Warren’s statement says the national headquarters provided support to help develop a positive culture, but current members have “squandered this assistance” and seem more interested in being a “drinking club.”
The chapter responded on Twitter that it is “saddened” by the decision. It said members have been held to high standards and participated in several activities to help the community, but were met with “disdain and mistreatment” by the national headquarters.
