Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity chapter banned from USC campus | abc7.com:

EXPOSITION PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity chapter was banned from the University of Southern California for violating school policies. The local chapter will lose its letters, its house and its charter. The fraternity chapter has been suspended for a minimum of five years. The action is meant to send a message about sexual misconduct, according to USC.

On USC's frat row, Greek names are boldly mounted on each house. Only one now is conspicuously blank.

The letters for Sigma Phi Epsilon have been removed. "SigEp," as it is called, has been expelled from its national organization and banned from the university.

The action comes following the national organization's review of reports about alleged sexual misconduct at the house. The dismissal has sent shock waves down the row.
