Fraternity Social Events Suspend at University of MI

Fraternity Social Events Suspend at University of MI”

The University of Michigan's Interfraternity Council, or IFC, has suspended fraternity social activities and pledge terms amidst hazing and sexual assault allegations.

Activities have been suspended at all fraternities on the University of MI campus following multiple reports of misconduct, including sexual assault and hazing. Two people are handcuffed to each other until they finish a bottle of Champagne.

The local governing body for National Interfraternity Conference fraternity chapters at UM outlined several disturbing incidents that have taken place in fraternities across campus.

The decision to ban social events, pledge initiation activities and meetings involving alcohol comes from a number of fraternity presidents at an IFC meeting Thursday, not the university, according to reports. It has come to our attention that some members of the Interfraternity Council community have not been living up to these standards.

The interfraternity council says the suspension will allow the university to assess the policies and practices and find a formal plan moving forward.

'We believe that social events are a privilege, and we, as a community, have not earned this privilege at this time, ' he wrote.

Activities that have already been paid for will still go on, but with monitors to keep an eye on students' sobriety.

The newspaper reports some hazing allegations include people being put in "alleged near-death situations".

According to a report by The Michigan Daily, the council is investigating more than 80 sexual assault cases which were reported between July 2015 and June 2016.

University of MI administrators are investigating after they learned all activities at Greek life fraternities on the campus have been suspended.

Earlier this year, Penn State suspended fraternities and sororities from holding social activities during the spring semester after the February hazing death of 19-year old Timothy Piazza.
