Vanderbilt AEPi Leaves Campus Amid Hazing Violations

Vanderbilt AEPi Leaves Campus Amid Hazing Violations

2258 views

As of this evening, the national organization of Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPI) removed the charter of its Vanderbilt chapter until 2021, effective immediately. This removal comes after the fraternity has faced multiple rumors of hazing in consecutive years.

Vanderbilt’s Interfraternity Council (IFC) had no role in kicking AEPi off campus, apart from raising hazing allegations against them. Normally, IFC has a judiciary role in these proceedings. However, this action was carried out entirely by AEPi nationals, as IFC did not see any evidence nor held a hearing. National fraternity organizations normally take a firm stance against  hazing allegations, evident in the case of Vanderbilt AEPi.

After this development, Vanderbilt will have thirteen chapters on campus, including the colonizing Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Although some fraternities, such as Kappa Sigma and Phi Gamma Delta, will have their houses torn down in the coming years as part of the FutureVU housing development project being carried out by Vanderbilt, the number of chapters will be unaffected in the near future, aside from this incident.

Unofficial sources reported noticing police officers in front of the AEPi house tonight. Some Vanderbilt students believe that police will continue to monitor their off-campus activity.

VPR will continue to track the developments of this event as they unfold.

    When I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any manner you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    How can I best copyright protect stories and articles on my writing website? I know you can insert a copyright symbol, but can this COMPLETELY protect against somebody copying and pasting your stuff and claiming that it is theirs?.
