NIU Frat Suspended In Anti-Semitic Harassment
(WBBM) -An anti-Semitic harassment incident has resulted in the 5-year suspension of a prominent fraternity at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.
WBBM's Pat Cassidy reports.
As WBBM first reported, Sigma Phi Epsilon faced a 10-year, virtual death sentence suspension for the incident earlier this year.
At issue, was an alleged verbal altercation and anti-Semitic remarks with a mainly Jewish NIU fraternity.
This week, the NIU Judicial Hearing Board found the fraternity responsible for harassment, imposed a 5-year suspension, a small fine, 2 years probation once the suspension ends and ordered members to attend civility classes.
NIU Student Affairs Vice President Brian Hemphill called it a sad day for the NIU Greek community. A Sig Ep spokesman tells WBBM they will appeal.
