Michigan axes Kappa Alpha Theta

Here is the link  And excerpt:

In an e-mail to the Daily, University spokesperson Rick Fitzgerald said Theta was suspended for inappropriate conduct.

In January, Kappa Alpha Theta was suspended through the Greek Activities Review Panel process for violations involving hazing and under-age drinking,” Fitzgerald said.

A video obtained by The Michigan Daily and heavilty circulated throughout the University community depicts Theta members consuming alchohol. 

Fitzegerald said the decision to disband Theta was from the organization’s national office.

My understanding is that this was a decision of the sorority’s national office,” he said. 

Theta is not the first Greek life organization to face disbandment. Sigma Alpha Mu was disbanded by its national chapter after … more than $250,000 in damages during a January 2015 ski trip to Treetops Resort.
