Sigma Alpha Mu Loses House (Washington - St. Louis) (Drug Allegations)

Excerpts from much longer article ^ on student paper's site:

The administration took away the Phi Chapter’s house after the Washington University Police Department made a drug bust there on Dec. 8, 2008, arresting students in the process.

With the help of the Office of Residential Life (ResLife), members of the fraternity have taken up residence in the Greenway Apartments and Quadrangle housing, where members hope to renew their sense of community and accountability.

. . . three Phi Chapter members were given alumni status and are no longer involved in the fraternity. Their fates as official members are now in the hands of SAM national headquarters.

The Phi Chapter remains an official University fraternity but will not return to its house in the foreseeable future.

. . . The fraternity, administrators added, has had multiple incidents in the past three years that required intervention from the University administration.

. . . SAM will endure without its house, but senior Dan Cate, outgoing president of the Interfraternity Council (IFC), said, “Just because they don’t have a house doesn’t mean they can’t be an active and beneficial chapter."

. . . House residents had until a week after the start of spring semester to move out of their house. ResLife officials placed all but four brothers into Greenway, with the other four next door in Quadrangle housing.

. . . SAM did not participate in recruitment with fellow fraternities and instead will recruit later in the semester.

The fraternity’s social activities also remain suspended. . . .

In order to regain good standing in the Greek community, the Phi Chapter is working on a multifaceted action plan for its future . . . .
Phi Chapter leaders and the Greek Life Office (GLO) have worked through several drafts of the plan, which has not been finalized. . . .
