Fraternity suspensions continue at Ohio State

Another Ohio State fraternity has been suspended: this time, the Ohio Delta chapter of Phi Kappa Psi.

The fraternity was hit with a four-year suspension on Wednesday after it was found to have violated the Code of Student Conduct, specifically the Hazing and Endangering Behavior sections.

“It is the intent of the university to uphold the Code of Student Conduct, to promote the education and development of students, and to provide a framework for future success of student organizations,” said Dave Isaacs, a spokesman for the Office of Student Life, in a written statement. “At the conclusion of the current suspension period, the chapter may petition the Office of Student Life to return to campus, consistent with applicable university policies.”

This suspension follows multiple other actions taken against Phi Kappa Psi and two investigations into the fraternity over the last two years. The fraternity was placed on a cease and desist on November 13, 2017 due to these investigations and a two-year probation on March 27, 2018, for violations of the university’s Code of Student Conduct, including Hazing, Endangering Behavior and Alcohol.

On March 1, 2018, in light of new allegations, the fraternity was placed on an interim suspension.

The suspension of Phi Kappa Psi follows a trend on Ohio State’s campus with Alpha Epsilon Pi and Sigma Alpha Mu most recently being suspended for five years.

Specific records relating to the most recent suspensions have not yet been released, but those and more are sure to come after the numerous investigations spurred by the brief suspension of all fraternity activity last fall.
