While this marks the third fraternity suspended in less than three weeks, it is curious to note each one was suspended for a different reason. Psi Upsilon was suspended for allegations of “illicit substance” use, and Lambda Chi was suspended due to a reported rape that occurred at its temporary residence. Both of these suspensions have been lifted by the University, though Lambda Chi is barred from all social activities and hosting guests.
It might be appropriate to start placing bets on how many days it will take the University to reverse Sigma Pi’s suspension. Five? Ten? Or is this case a serious one in which the University actually fielded a proper investigation and gathered credible evidence before dictating a suspension?
Also, Cunooz offered some bright satire on the whole matter of Cornell’s off and on again relationship with suspending campus fraternities: Cornell University Suspended For Hazing Fraternities.
