Purdue places 4 fraternities on probation

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue officials on Friday (Oct. 29) announced that four campus fraternities have been placed on probation for violating university regulations and Interfraternity Council Risk Management policies.

“Lambda Chi Alpha, Theta Tau, Phi Kappa Psi and Beta Theta Pi, all were placed on probationary status for varying lengths after university investigations. Each of the violations was for serving alcohol to minors during separate functions at each house,” said Pablo Malavenda, associate dean of students.

Lambda Chi Alpha’s probation will last until Jan. 1. Beta Theta Pi will be on probation through March 11, while Phi Kappa Psi and Theta Tau’s sanction will extend to May 1. Additionally, all but Lambda Chi Alpha were fined $500 for hard alcohol violations.

“The length of the probations varied and the fines imposed because the violations were of different degrees,” Malavenda said. “Our fraternities and sororities are made aware of the regulations, and if we find that they’re not complying, we will take steps. These fraternities will have to show that they’re meeting certain standards, and we’ll help them along the way.”

In order to maintain university recognition, each of the fraternities will not be able to serve alcohol at any functions until specified dates. In addition to completing alcohol education programs, the fraternities also must participate in leadership activities.

“As evidenced by the recent moratorium on social activities involving alcohol, our sorority and fraternity community is showing outstanding leadership in trying to resolve serious issues with alcohol abuse,” said Tony Hawkins, dean of students. “As with any transitional change, however, progress is sometimes incremental due to communication and lingering confusion about changing rules and/or regulations. We are seeing strong evidence of a desire to comply and protect the welfare of others, and we are hopeful that fewer sanctions will need to be levied in the future as more progress is made.”
