Penn State Revokes Delta Tau Delta’s Recognition

Penn State announced today along with information about Beta Theta Pi Student Conduct information that it has officially revoked the recognition of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, effective immediately until the end of the fall 2018 semester.

The university cites “several violations of University rules” as the reason behind DTD’s loss of recognition.

The chapter was placed on interim suspension earlier this semester so Penn State could investigate after a student who was suspected of drinking alcohol at the fraternity was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious in Calder Way.

Delta Tau Delta was charged with furnishing alcohol to minors earlier this week for the same incident, which occurred on September 28.

Witnesses said student Brendan Soh was attempting to jump a fence when his leg got caught and he fell; this was later confirmed by downtown cameras, which show Soh running through the Garner Street parking lot until he failed to jump over the small chain fence between the lot and Calder Way. Soh remained unconscious on Calder until police and emergency medical services arrived.

Medical records showed Soh had alcohol in his system, and both he and his roommate Jack Turner were interviewed. The two 18-year-olds said they were drinking at DTD that night.

DTD is the tenth Penn State fraternity currently suspended; 39 chapters remain recognized by the university, according to the directory released via the university’s new Greek Life Score Cards.
