UCF's Sigma Nu suspended from alcohol activities
The Mu Psi Chapter of the Sigma Nu Fraternity at UCF has recently been suspended from activities involving alcohol.
Fred Dobry, director of Risk Reduction at Sigma Nu's headquarters, said the national office has recently been made aware of the fraternity's violations.
"In keeping with Sigma Nu Fraternity's appropriate and normal procedure when receiving such concerning information, we have begun an investigation of the information received and have taken action to suspend the chapter's activities with alcohol, pending completion of the investigation," Dobry said.
According to the activity suspension letter dated June 16 by Drew Logsdon, associate director of communications at the national office, the suspension is due to possible violations of the General Fraternity's Risk Reduction Policy and Guidelines.
"Per the law of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc., all activities with alcohol of the Mu Psi Chapter are hereby suspended pending the outcome of an investigation. Any and all activities with alcohol must cease immediately," Logsdon wrote in the letter.
UCF's Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life supports the national office's decision, however, UCF spokeswoman Courtney Gilmartin said Sigma Nu is not currently under organizational review by the university.
