DELTA TAU DELTA SHUTS DOWN CHAPTER

By FITSNews  ||  It’s been a bad week for fraternities in South Carolina …

Obviously the big news across the Palmetto State is the mysterious death of 19-year-old Tucker Hipps – a member of Clemson University’s Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.  But at the University of South Carolina an entire fraternity has been suspended from campus for four years.

According to school officials, the Theta Eta chapter of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity has been suspended through the fall of 2018 for violating university policies related to alcohol at recruitment events.

The fraternity was previously placed on social probation for similar violations in the past.  It had been appealing its suspension, but the national organization chose to close the chapter instead.
