Penn State Places Chi Phi Fraternity On Interim Suspension

Penn State has placed Chi Phi fraternity on interim suspension while it investigates multiple allegations of “serious misconduct,” according to a university spokesperson.

A spokesperson said the university’s Office of Student Conduct received information suggesting that Chi Phi fraternity engaged in hazing, including alleged forced alcohol consumption.

Penn State said information on the case and suspension is “forthcoming.” The fraternity has already been notified of its interim suspension.

Chi Phi fraternity’s national organization is partnering with Penn State’s Office of Student Conduct during the investigation.

While suspended, Chi Phi fraternity will lose all privileges of recognized student organizations including membership recruitment, new member activities, participation in university-wide functions, and hosting social events.

In October 2019, Penn State suspended Chi Phi fraternity after a 17-year-old male, who was not a Penn State student died of cardiac arrest at a College Avenue residence allegedly occupied by fraternity members. The fraternity was later reinstated after the individual’s death was ruled an accident.

We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
