LINCOLN (AP) — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has decided to punish a fraternity for alcohol and fire code violations.
The university said Thursday that the punishment will include suspension of the Delta Eta chapter of Sigma Nu. Freshman members won’t be allowed to live at the frat house and must reside instead at university residence halls the rest of this semester.
Fire code violations forced inspectors to ban residents from the house after firefighters responded to a call there Sunday. Several bottles of alcohol were found inside the house.
University administrators are working with the chapter’s alumni and advisory board and with Sigma Nu’s national office on steps that the chapter could take to be reinstated on the Lincoln campus.
The national Sigma Nu has suspended the Delta Eta chapter as well.
