Sig Ep fraternity loses charter, new house - CollegiateTimes.com:
The following quote from a letter to HQ staff gives an overview :
All,So there you have it. In the last few years a number of outwardly successful chapters have been closed. The reasons for closing have been varied. However, inability to change from a culture of high-risk behavior and non-existent or non-enforced standards to a culture of mutual support and accountability are high on the list of reasons. And it is not just about the undergraduates. Alumni who are resistant to change cannot shield a bad chapter from scrutiny.
Later this afternoon, we will announce the closure of the Virginia Kappa Chapter at Virginia Tech.
As many of you are aware, this comes after months and years of effort on the part of the staff, alumni-volunteers, and Virginia Tech to address significant behavioral issues and general under-performance among the members.
We're all looking forward to re-colonizing a great chapter at VT in the upcoming years.
We look forward to a new, improved chapter at VA Tech in a few years.
