Alpha Epsilon Pi Suspended by IFC

The Penn State chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi has been suspended until the investigation into hazing allegations is completed. According to police reports, the fraternity forced recruits to binge drink to the point where two were sent to Mount Nittany medical Center for acute alcohol overdoses.

During the suspension, the fraternity will not be allowed to participate in any of the typical Greek activities, such as Greek Week, Greek Sing, Homecoming, THON, recruitment. They also can’t meet as a group for any reason, including community service.

According to the Interfraternity Council’s press release, any violation of the suspension will result in “an automatic and immediate loss of Alpha Epsilon Pi’s recognition from the Penn State Interfraternity Council.” The chapter’s suspension is indefinite; “The Interfraternity Council has fully suspended its recognition of Alpha Epsilon Pi until the completion of its own investigation.” After that, ΑΕΠ  representatives will have the opportunity to present their case to IFC’s Peer Review Board. Following the meeting, the Peer Review Board will decide what the next step should be.

While ΑΕΠ President and National Headquarters officials had no comment on the matter, IFC President Max Wendkos said, “The behavior described in the charges against Alpha Epsilon Pi is unacceptable and will not be tolerated within the Greek community.”
