SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Hundreds of students are suspended from Greek Life at San Diego State. The school confirmed the Sigma Phi Epsilon and Alpha Phi chapters are under investigation.
The school says an incident happened at the frat house on Halloween. They added that the sorority knew about it but did not report it.
They released this statement to 10News today:
"San Diego State University has placed Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority on interim suspension while continuing an investigation of both chapters. The university is working in collaboration with the national offices of both chapters.
On October 31, 2018, SDSU placed the Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter on interim suspension following a report indicating that an incident occurred at the fraternity house that may have put a member of the university’s community at risk. Following the initial investigation, SDSU also placed Alpha Phi on interim suspension after learning that the sorority chapter failed to report the incident."
10News spoke to students on campus concerned about what that dangerous situation might be.
"I think that there’s bad seeds everywhere so you just really do have to be careful," said sophomore Sydney Hurst. "I think male students here and everywhere should be held to a higher standard but unfortunately that just isn’t always the case with certain people."
No word on how long the new suspensions will last.
