If you are interested in experiencing the most realistic representation of hell that can be found on Earth, apply for a job in the Arizona Greek life office. Another Arizona fraternity is in the news, and this time, it’s for attacking another chapter.
The geniuses of SAE at the University of Arizona have been suspended after forcing their way into an off-campus residence full of Alpha Epsilon Pi members, causing an unnecessary stir.
According to a letter from the Dean of Students Office, “Reportedly on or about November 14, 2014, approximately 15 members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon forced entry into the off campus residence of UA students, yelling discriminatory comments at the UA students and physically assaulting them.”
The letter to SAE adds, “Sigma Alpha Epsilon members are prohibited from having any contact with members of Alpha Epsilon Pi.”
There may be no better way to thoroughly piss off your Greek advisers than by physically attacking another chapter. Arizona’s AEPi–the campus’s Jewish fraternity and home of UA basketball star Rondae Hollis-Jefferson–has a history of being victimized. A similar incident occurred this past March, but it had no connection to SAE.
SAE headquarters got word of the most recent incident, and officials claim to have suspended four brothers following the attack.
The chapter was already facing severe disciplinary action following the outcome of an investigation launched in October. The investigation was ordered following reports of SAE actives beating, hazing, and humiliating new members. The reports also stated issues with underage drinking at fraternity functions..
