UConn Sacks Delta Chi

Delta Chi loses recognition Wednesday
by Joseph Adinolfi

Delta Chi Fraternity lost recognition as a chapter at UConn Wednesday because of sanctions imposed by the Offices of Community Standards and Fraternity and Sorority Life.

The organization cannot regain its station on campus until May 31, 2015, according to an e-mail sent by Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Lindsay L. Sell.

In the e-mail, Sell assured readers that "a lengthy process was utilized" by Community Standards before the office implemented the sanctions. Sell added that the decision "will result in Delta Chi no longer having space in Husky Village."

The e-mail did not include any mention of the fraternity's specific offenses.

Calls and an e-mail to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life were not returned Wednesday, and no members of Delta Chi could be reached for comment.

According to the UConn website for Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Delta Chi chapter at UConn was founded in 1955.
