Sig Ep At Virginia Tech Just Lost Their Brand New $5,000,000 Home To GDIs

*****UPDATE – 10:31 CST*****

Per another tipster:

They lost their charter because they hired porn stars to strip for them using chapter funds.

Ha! Classic.

We were also emailed a formal document that’s about as long as every college textbook I never read, but after spending a couple minutes skimming through, it appears to be a detailed report of every allegation against the chapter and subsequent response from the national office from December 2008 to November 2012. I’ll start sorting through this bad boy to see what I can share, if anything at all.

The latest:

I read through the document this morning. I don’t want to air anyone’s dirty laundry, so I’ll just say that the earlier report about misconduct and mismanagement was fairly accurate. Okay, very accurate. They also treated their new mansion like a rundown spring break hotel.

According to multiple tipsters, the Virginia Tech chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon recently had their recognition withdrawn by their national office. Details remain minimal and unconfirmed for the time being, as this story is still fluid, and we’ll certainly update as soon as we obtain more information, but it sounds like their charter was pulled due to general misconduct and mismanagement.

Remember the amazing $5 million house that this chapter had the privilege of moving into at the beginning of the spring semester?

You know, this one:

Well, they lost it. They have to move out and they have to stay out. Commenters from this story that I posted almost a month ago state that the chapter was previously on probation, contributing to the explanation of the seemingly abrupt dismissal.

We were also sent the following screen capture. I can’t confirm where it’s from or by whom it was posted, but it helps shed some light on this breaking development, so here it is:

My response to that last paragraph: ouch, and fuuuuuuuuuuuck.

    Thats why the house money manager creates a separate account at the beginning of the semester, overcharges dues because parents pay them anyways, and uses this separate money that is ‘unaffiliated’ with the fraternity to do this shit. It’s not about whats right or wrong, its how it looks in the ledger. Moral of the story is bid more Hebrews next time.

    Ah, there was a time when Sig Eps were pretty badass. So sad to see the current trend of NF. Myself and all of us “old guys” talk about the demise of SigEp, and it’ll make a grown man cry. Sure I’m gonna get trolled pretty hard for this one.

      Heard form our national Housing Manager that these kids showed up to their house opening all in shorts and blazers. Doesn’t sound like they would even know what to do with a house like that anyways. Us being a traditional chapter with pledgeship, our RD still gave us a ridiculous amount of attention and help. Really depends on the men running the chapter, and they had nothing going for them.

      Coming from a traditional SigEp chapter, it really is a shame to see the kind of shit that nationals pull on their own “brothers” for one reason or another. The requirements they uphold in order to maintain traditional status are ridiculous and it seems like the RD just drops in at our house twice a month to catch someone breaking their asinine rules. I think some geed took control and just wants it to be Sigma Phi Everyone. Fuck that.

      ^^ I agree with Fratsman. Accepting a bid and dropping under your own will is being a pussy and I doubt any other respectable fraternity would give you a bid…but nobody is considered part of my fraternity unless they’ve been through the ritual process, not because they accepted a bid.

      Yah, they’re traditional…for now. Same thing happened at Mizzou a few years ago. House was shit, had bad grades, etc but they were good at sports and drinkin so who gives a shit, right? Well nationals came in and built a new $3.2 million house then put every member up for review and kicked almost everyone out, then forced the ones who stayed to agree to Balanced Man. So they all quit. Good for them.

      Basically it means that their HQ has decided that the guys who joined this past academic year are not being punished for behaviors of brothers who had been around for awhile and one might guess caused this to happen. It means that during their HQ’s investigation, they found that the behaviors/misconduct that caused this chapter to be shut down had been occurring for some time so you could think of it as a retroactive suspension of charter.

      ^ Okay, now that’s just ridiculous. I’m personally of the opinion that dudes who quit pledging are pussies, but to say they’re “permanently bound” by a bid card is silly. They’re not permanent anything until they’ve seen my ritual.

      I was thinking the same thing. Unless they’re still pledging (which they’re not b/c you’re initiated as soon as you accept a bid from Sig Ep), that’s pretty much a violation of every fraternity’s policy.

      ^^ Even under BM protocol, you’re still not “initiated” per nationals until you get through the Sigma and Phi stages of the BM program, both of which combined can take a considerable amount of time. Most of these guys would still be considered pledges by any other fraternity’s standards, I’m guessing.

      I wouldnt care if they gave me the option or not. You never join another fratnerity. Once you accept a bid anywhere you should stick to it. You belong with that fraternity its why they gave you a bid.

      Same thing happened to UF SigEp. Review happened, kicked out couple kids, national reviewed again and kicked out 150 kids. Went to rebuild (still killed it from what I hear) and then charter got pulled end of fall. The kids that pledged and were initiated in fall all went to Theta Chi. Although some nationals have in their bylaws this isn’t allowed, some fraternities sweep by it.

      My cousin at Alabama was a SPE and when they got kicked out they gave him the option to join another fraternity… really curious if anyone is allowed to explain that more.
