The Chapter of Alpha Phi on the campus of East Carolina University has been suspended for 3 years after an investigation revealed that come members have been hazing, which violated the Student Code of Conduct.
ECU says the chapter may return to campus in May 2021. Upon an approved return to campus, the chapter will be placed on probation for two years and members of Alpha Phi must establish a plan for re-entry.
“ECU has been in constant communication with Alpha Phi International and we have been working collaboratively to investigate these issues,” said John Mountz, ECU Director of Greek Life. “We are saddened to have to suspend a chapter from our campus, but a significant part of being members of the Greek community is understanding the responsibility and accountability of actions taken.”
In February, ECU’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was shut down. In April, ECU’s Phi Kappa Tau fraternity was suspended after police found 2,500 xanax bars inside the fraternity house.
