Update May 23 '09: Suspension Until 2013 (at least); Terms of Suspension, etc.

http://cbs3.com/delawarewire/22.0.ht...dent-Death.xml

Excerpts from report:

The University of Delaware has suspended until 2013 a fraternity where a pledge died of alcohol poisoning last year.
The university confirmed the suspension on Friday. One day earlier, the Delaware Attorney General's Office announced it had filed a criminal hazing charge against the Delta Lambda chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu.
. . . The fraternity is barred from engaging in social activities on campus, using university buildings or property, receiving university funding and participating in university-sponsored events. . . .

I searched the Univ. Of Delaware's Greek website and it looks like they (SAM) are no longer recognized by both the University and the IFC. Also, the SAM National website does not mention anything about their charter being revoked.

That's what I thought. I didn't want to jump to any conclusions. There are still several nationals (mine has been known to do this) which will allow their chapters to exist sans university recognition. TKE actually did this on my campus when I was in undergrad.
