Chi Omega to return to UCF-campus house in spring
Chi Omega will be able to move back into its house in spring 2015, pending completion of the conditions set in its organizational conduct case, said UCF spokesman Chad Binette.
UCF suspended Chi Omega after hazing allegations arose against three former members toward the end of the spring 2014 semester. Following its suspension, the Greek organization's house — which was leased to Chi Omega — has remained mostly vacant, with the exception of a graduate assistant house director with UCF Housing and Residence Life, since members were required to vacate on Aug. 1. The organization tried to appeal its suspension during the summer semesters, but came up unsuccessful in those attempts.
The organization, Binette said, chose to leave the space vacant during the suspension, but uses the house to meet and complete required educational programs.
During the organization's vacancy, the graduate assistant reports any maintenance concerns or repairs that need to be made. The house is also being cleaned and maintained on a regular basis.
The Chi Omega UCF chapter and national organization did not return phone calls or emails to comment.
