National SigEp director: 'I was shocked' by Vermont chapter's rape survey | Burlington Free Press | burlingtonfreepress.com:
"The executive director of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity says he was shocked when he learned that members of the University of Vermont chapter had surveyed its members about who they would like to rape.

“I was shocked — praying the allegations were not true,” Brian Warren of Sig Ep’s national office in Richmond, Va., told the Burlington Free Press on Wednesday afternoon. He said the conduct is atypical of the 117 Sig Ep fraternities across the nation.

“We will not tolerate this behavior,” said Warren, who has led the national organization since 2009. “This is not a theme throughout the country. This is very unique in my two years.”"
