Close call but death averted at U. Conn Fiji chapter last February.
CT reports: Phi Gamma Delta, commonly known as FIJI, was notified Sept. 30 that it had been “permanently separated from the university with no opportunity to return in the future as a recognized student organization,” UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said.
Past history: 2017
The Delta Gamma fraternity council said it would be closing the Epsilon Pi sorority chapter at the University of Connecticut following the death of a member of the sorority was struck by a fire department vehicle in October as she was returning home from a fraternity party. The deceased was Jeffny Pally.
In February, six members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity — Patrick Callahan, Matthew Moll, Austin Custodio, Dominic Godi, Dylan Morose and Jonathan Polansky — were arrested and charged with various counts, including permitting a minor to illegally possess alcohol and sale or delivery to minors.
On Monday, the fraternity announced that the UConn chapter of the sorority will close, only weeks after these arrests.
