Another charter pulled and fraternity house lost due to prolonged and gross misconduct by its members.
The chapter was already on an “emergency suspension” from an April 1 party that turned into the scene of a sexual assault allegation. That investigation is still ongoing. Continued partying, underage drinking and hazing, among other things, have led to the decision to finally yank the house from the fraternity. The suspension will last four years, in a move that essentially says, “Yeah, the next time this chapter has a chance to regain its charter and establish new residency, none of you morons will be around to see it.”
The university also cited a history of conduct violations by the fraternity.
“The University has placed the fraternity on probation and suspension for a number of infractions over the past five years including drinking, hazing, damaged property, non registered events and allegations of members having sexual relations with underage females,” the UNM statement read.
Now, to the house. If I told you to close your eyes and imagine what a University of New Mexico fraternity house — assumedly a middle-tier one, at best — looks like, is this not exactly what enters your mind? As one of our interns aptly put it, “their house looks like an adobe sweat lodge.” It really does. It also reminds me of something you might find on the set of Breaking Bad. I can just picture this house surrounded by some caution tape after a Blue Sky meth deal goes awry on the front porch, leading to a double homicide.
Bottom line, it looks like some shady shit goes on inside this classic New Mexican architecture house, and after learning of this development, appearances can clearly be telling.
