Ohio State University suspends most of its fraternities

SOURCE MGN

Ohio State University has issued a suspension of "all social, recruitment and new member activities" for the 37 fraternity chapters governed by the university's Interfraternity Council.

Fraternities at the university may only participate in "essential activities" until the suspension is over - not including social or alcohol-related events.

Dave Isaacs, a spokesman for the university's Office of Student Life, said in a statement that the majority of the investigations into the 11 fraternities involve hazing and alcohol.

Eleven of the university's 37 Interfraternity Council (IFC) chapters are now under investigation for misconduct violations - a number that university leaders say is higher than in any recent year.

The suspension does not apply to the 17 campus sororities that make up Ohio State's Panhellenic Association, Isaacs said, none of which have been under investigation this semester.

Ohio State said the move was not based on any specific case, but instead on the high number of investigations.

Senate seat that Hillary Clinton once occupied and is very close to the Clintons-Bill Clinton even has campaigned with her . Al Franken (D-Minn.) of forcefully kissing and groping her during a USO tour in 2006. "But I'll let her speak for herself".

It is the latest school to clamp down on Greek letter organizations following incidents of hazing, misconduct, and even deaths of students.

"The Greek community at Ohio State has a long and rich tradition of leadership, service and brotherhood/sisterhood", Lovell said. All IFC chapters at Ohio State will be required to submit a list of essential activities to school authorities.

The IFC does not represent the school's sororities, nor the fraternities in the National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Multicultural Greek Council.

"To be direct, we expect the Interfraternity Council community to join together and become a full partner in creating a culture that truly reflects the values of the Ohio State Greek community", the university wrote in the letter.

On Monday, a prosecutor filed new charges against 12 members of a Pennsylvania State University fraternity in connection with the death of a 19-year-old student in February after an alcohol-fueled initiation rite.
