UCF ADPi Suspended Over Group Chat Contents

Alpha Delta Pi at the University of Central Florida has been suspended after the contents of their group chats was exposed - drinking, sharing IDs and paying others to complete assignments. It also included a photo of a person lying next to a toilet. *sigh*

Yikes. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Interestingly, one article says that the reporting person is a member who was on study abroad and another article describes her as a former member. I wonder if she resigned and then turned in the chapter or what.

I never trust the word "former" when it comes to ... well, anyone non-Greek lol ... because most people assume alumnae are "former" members and you're only a member while in college.

Both articles are correct in that she is a former member now, but she dropped after having issues with them (as we can now clearly see). She was a transfer to the chapter from another university.

But once again—DO NOT POST damaging, embarrassing, illegal, immoral, etc. etc. photos and comments ON SOCIAL MEDIA, even “secure” group chats. They very often come back to bite you in the azz....

I really wonder if they followed proper channels. Typically, if there were situations like this, it would be brought to their standards committee. If you didnít feel there was resolution, you would go to the advisors and then to your national representatives. Organizations are set up to take care of these kind of things in a way that doesnít hurt the innocent in a chapter. Iíve seen instances where nationals comes in and removes almost half of a chapter. This still allows the chapter to heal, grow and maintain its presence on a campus. I am assuming this former member chose not to follow the grievance procedures put in place by her national organization and instead went straight to the university. I feel for all the innocent girls who will be hurt by this decision.

Sorry, but other than the academic dishonesty, this is an over reaction. College students drink. Sometimes too much. Absent additional circumstances (ie; forced consumption), suspending an entire house is nuts. Once they treat non-greeks the same, maybe I'll change my mind.

I agree with the last two posts. It should be handled in house, if possible. And- this isn't earth shattering, to me. I don't think it's worth Suspending a chapter over. They weren't hazing or forcing people to drink.

One of the articles I read stated that the photo of the young woman passed out by the toilet was a member, and she was naked from the waist down. This adds even more legal issues into the mix.

Was the group chat set up by the chapter for all members to use or was it set up by a group of members for their private use? Seems to me that's an important distinction.

This could happen to any chapter anywhere. Yes, every sorority has procedures in place. Standards should have been the first stop. However, I have seen Standards Boards put under peer pressure to overlook concerns. Yes, she should have gone to her advisors. Maybe she did and it was not considered as an issue as this to depends on the CAB and Chapter Council. I doubt she went to her National Organization as they would have taken action on the chapter. Going to the University was a big deal. I have a feeling she did it out of frustration. At a chapter with a size of 100 members or less , I find it is easier for them to deal with it in house but for our larger chapters a lot is covered up. I agree it is not fair to punish those not involved but were they complaint and silent and if so why? I served as Chairman of a HCB for 13 years and we have awesome members but sometimes you have a few that are not willing to follow the expectations. You need strong advisors. Some one should have seen the culture developing. And, for those of you who said this is no big deal. It is! Enough to close a chapter is up for debate.

We are under attack from people who don't think Greek Life should be on our campuses. This is not the time for "girls will be girls" or "boys will be boys" Thanks for letting me rant. Check out FSPAC and see where their concerns are for our future.

Actually to address the girl going to standards first, she actually went straight to their exec board according to one report. But they did nothing about it and was actually criticized by one member of exec for even bringing it up.

UCF admin has a history of knee jerk reactions. They should've allowed the national org a chance to investigate and resolve this incident before stepping in.

If your standard is college kids shouldn't drink, you may as well shut college down.

I think the standard is more ďdonít distribute naked pictures of other people without their consent and donít commit academic dishonesty.Ē
