(WMC-TV) - The Sigma Chi Fraternity at Ole Miss was suspended from the campus through the fall 2013 semester for violation of the university's alcohol policy.
The fraternity was already on a two-strike probation for a previous violation in 2012. The fraternity was found guilty of several other violations including illegal possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct, disregard for university authority and failure to follow the guidelines for registration of activities found in the Student Organization Handbook.
“The University’s two-strike policy for students and organizations is flawed and needs to be changed as it delivers major punishment for minor offenses. A first strike sets up the opportunity to fail for the second,” said Eta Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity chapter advisor Major Geoffrey Yoste in a press release.
