MTSU’s Sigma Pi Suspended For Completely Harmless Welcome Banner

Banner comedy is officially dead, or at least suspended indefinitely.

A day after Old Dominion’s Sigma Nu caused some controversy with some “sexually suggestive” banners hung in front of their house, a Middle Tennessee State University fraternity has taken down a sign that briefly hung in front of their house as well.

The banner outside of MTSU’s Sigma Pi read: “Freshman Girls Info Center” — and that’s hilarious.

Apparently not hilarious to their nationals, though, who suspended the fraternity shortly after the news broke.

WKRN reports the banner was hanging for up to 30 minutes and university officials didn’t ask for the fraternity to remove it.

MTSU released a statement to WKRN reading:

“The sign in question is inconsistent with the values we promote as a university. We have shared our concerns with the fraternity’s national headquarters and await feedback. We will continue to gather information as we determine whether action by the university is warranted.”

Suspended or not, Sigma Pi’s only wrongdoing here is poor timing. It was funny and harmless. As a passerby, you look over, chuckle, and go about your day.

Sigma Pi’s nationals say the fraternity will be suspended until a further investigation is complete, and the members responsible will face disciplinary action.
