Northwestern: Sigma Phi Epsilon Suspension & Membership Review

Sig Ep HQ has placed the Northwestern (Evanston IL) chapter on suspension and will do / is doing a membership review, according to Northwestern's student paper. I may be wrong, but I've had the impression that Northwestern is one of those more or less ultra-elite universities where most fraternities and sororities want to keep chapters open if possible. See:

Excerpt from ^^:

All undergraduate members of Northwestern's chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon are suspended awaiting a membership review by alumni advisers in the fall, according the fraternity's national [headquarters] ...

The fraternity's board of directors decided to suspend*NU's*members after*noting*a "pattern of risky behavior exhibited by the chapter over the last year," as well as their*failure to correct that conduct, executive director Brian Warren Jr. said in a statement provided to The Daily on Friday.

Warren wrote that the national fraternity "look(s) forward to working with all members who are committed to building a chapter that will enrich the college experience at Northwestern."

As of now, NU's Sig Ep members are under review by the national organization's Alumni Advisory Council, according to the statement. . . .

Was there also a membership review at the University of Florida? It's isn't advertised on the chapter's website, but the symptoms (giant cut in membership numbers) are clear from the chapter's profile on the National's website:
