Ohio State University has revoked the campus recognition of the following fraternities:

Phi Delta Theta (until 2024)- violation of Student Code of Conduct for hazing, failure to comply with campus or civil authority

Sigma Pi (until 2023)- violation of Student Code of Conduct for hazing, violation of alcohol policies

Zeta Beta Tau (until 2023)- violation of alcohol policies, failure to comply with campus or civil authority

It is currently unknown if their respective organizations have also closed or suspended the chapters.

"Beginning Fall 2019 only nationally affiliated social Greek organizations will be permitted to charter on the campus of Plymouth State University. Organizations currently on campus will have until August 1, 2020 to align with a national organization in order to maintain recognition with Plymouth State University. Chapters that do not adhere, will not be recognized by the university."

According to the university website, there are three local organizations and two were shown as seeking affiliation. I wonder if Alpha Sigma Alpha is going to absorb one of these, or be a ground-up colonization.

In addition to Alpha Sigma Alpha, it appears that Theta Phi Alpha is also establishing a colony. The ASA news release mentions that they are "joining Delta Zeta and Theta Phi Alpha". DZ already has a chapter at Plymouth, but Theta Phi does not.

Do any of those three locals have ties to the former ASA chapter? (as in, after the ASA chapter closed, the remaining members formed a local which is still around today)

I can confirm that, re: Theta Phi. Our director of growth and outreach is there this week with a team and working on recruitment.

RE: ASA, I'm not sure of the particulars or details after the chapter closed regarding if a local was formed, that campus I'm not super familiar with so I can't speculate. Although I was really happy to see the news since one of my friends/sisters was a founding member during its previous colonization.

The former members of ASA formed a local called Sigma Kappa Omega after the chapter was closed. A pledge of SKO was killed after a car crash with ten pledges in the car-the police at the time said they were blindfolded and the car was being jerked back and forth by the driver as part of a hazing ritual, but I don't know if that was ever substantiated.

When the former chapter of ASA at Plymouth self closed, no local sorority was formed. All members became alumnae sisters.
SKO was a local startup. ASA was still on campus during this incident.
Yes, we will be absorbing a local that was on campus even before the ASA chapter was originally established.

The Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter at Lamar University(TX) has been closed. Closure is due to hazing allegations.

DANG! That's not hazing; that's felony assault. (Or, at least I think so.)

For those of you who haven't read it:

"Sillas said when they were at the campfire in Cloudcroft J.R. pulled him aside and told him to turn around.

"J.R. pulled me to the side and said you didn't get this done. He told me to turn around and I thought I was going to get hit with a paddle," said Sillas. "He unzipped his backpack and pulled out a gun and that's when I started to freak out."

"He said everyone did it. He pressed it on my leg and pulled the trigger," said Sillas."
