In what is becoming a developing story, LSU’s Sigma Chi has been placed on interim suspension by the university. Sigma Chi is considered to be the top house on campus and has around 150 active members. While there is no concrete detail as to why they were suspended, the school and their nationals have opened an investigation into the matter.
From The Daily Reveille:
“LSU placed them on interim suspension pending an advocacy and accountability investigation and [organization] accountability process,” said LSU Media Relations Director Ernie Ballard. Both LSU’s and the chapter’s investigation and accountability process will unfold concurrently, Ballard confirmed.
Ballard said he could not reveal the grounds for the suspension, as the investigation is pending.
Ernie also mentioned, at the time of the investigation, that there has been no talk of forcing the members who live in the house to pack up their things. Rumor has it that this is the end for Sigma Chi and that it’s only a matter of time before they are kicked off for good. We cannot confirm those rumors at this time, though. I hope this turns out to be nothing and they are allowed to stay on.
If the rumor turns out to be true, Sigma Chi would become the second fraternity this year to be kicked off campus. Back in March, Acacia was let go for hazing violations.
We will update the story as more information becomes available..
