FRAT TROUBLE: Fraternity Faces Trouble At Iowa And ISU
Authorities are investigating reports of a sexual assault at the now closed Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at the University of Iowa.
According to the Des Moines Register, the alleged assault was reported on September 11th. No charges are filed in the case.
Officials say they are unsure if the sexual assault allegation is tied to the hazing incident that’s cited at the reason the fraternity shut down.
All 90 residents living at the chapter house are looking for a new place to live.
The same fraternity is running into troubles at Iowa State University. The university confirms 20-members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity were suspended.
The national headquarters says it isn’t related to the incident at the University of Iowa.
SAE made this statement:
“The suspensions are part of an ongoing process to make sure the members’ actions reflect our creed, “the true gentleman” and our guiding principles.”
The headquarters wouldn’t say why the members were suspended but said it could be a number of reasons from violating fraternity rules to not paying dues.
