Are they Fraternity members or did they happen to be partying there? That wasn't specified.

Also, I like that, even though this is negative Greek news, just under this story was a link to the Trans-surgery that the Boston fraternity is raising funds for.

They were all Sig Ep pledges. They caught Lambda Chi pledges trying to paint their door on a Saturday night. Chased and caught one of the Lambda Chi pledges and beat him up pretty bad (he is a friend of my son's) and held him overnight at the Sig Ep house. The chapter is on temporary suspension with the decision coming down in the next couple of days as to if they are going to be allowed to stay on campus.

I just realized, this is reaalllyyy not-so-good press with Conclave (our bi-annual national convention) being just outside of Dallas this year. I'm sure the community will be absolutely thrilled to have 5,000 (or whatever the number is) of us crawling around the area...

Unfortunately, this is the second instance that involved a Sig Ep at SMU this school year - not sure when your Conclave is but his trial is suppose to be coming up in the next couple of months. That particular student has ties back to the founders of SMU so I have a feeling that there will be heavy news coverage (if it goes to trial).

SMU Sig EP

What a bad call by the Sig Ep Pledges. Why didn't someone stop this. I predict Sig Ep will leave campus or get killed in rush next year. Lots of bad press for this chapter.

First week of August. Probably perfect timing, right?
