Update on San Diego State lifted suspensions: Press Release from SDSU

SDSU Lifts Interim Suspension on Three Fraternities

SAN DIEGO (Thursday, May 15, 2008) – San Diego State University has lifted
the interim suspension from three campus fraternities, the university
announced today.

After a review of case details, SDSU Vice President for Student Affairs
James Kitchen lifted the interim suspension from the Phi Kappa Theta, Sigma
Alpha Mu and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternities. The suspension was lifted
after an administrative review found that those arrested in connection to
the controlled substances investigation were either inactive members of the
fraternity and/or were not presently residents of chapter houses.

The three fraternities had been placed on interim suspension based on each
having a single member arrested on felony charges. However, the university
review found that there was not sufficient information to implicate the
fraternity chapter as a whole.

Three other fraternity chapters, including Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Kappa Psi and Theta Chi, are still on interim suspension pending further
investigation by SDSU administration.
