Purdue Update (from

West Lafayette – Five Purdue University fraternities temporarily suspended for violating the school’s policies on alcohol have had their suspensions lifted.

Delta Upsilon, Kappa Delta Rho, Phi Kappa Psi, Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Alpha Epsilon all had their suspensions removed by the dean of students and the Interfraternity Council.

However, the fraternities must now fulfill a list of requirements to stay active. Some of those requirements include attending mandatory alcohol awareness workshops and co-sponsoring alcohol education programming.

If the chapters violate school rules again, they could face full suspension.
