Cornell University closes fraternity in wake of possible hate crime

Here's the article.

Update: Psi Upsilon later updated its statement, saying that after the investigation yielded no members were involved in the alleged assault, the suspension would be changed from indefinite to last only until 2020.

For clarification, Cornell had already derecognized them in wake of the scandal after their president was charged with sexual assault that occurred in the house. The chapter then threw a party while on interim suspension and was derecognized for three years, which then turned to four when the school found out some members were still trying to recruit pledges. The article is confusing, but it sounds like they were eligible to come back sooner and now have opted not to because the national org has lengthened their suspension.

Either way, not a good look.

It's a good look for the national organization. A bad look for the locals.
