UM fraternity suspension lifted after hearing
OXFORD, Miss.- A two-semester suspension for the Sigma Chi fraternity at the University of Mississippi has been lifted. Instead, the fraternity will be on social probation for a year.
The Daily Mississippian reports that the decision came from the school's Judicial Council after it heard an appeal from the fraternity this week.
The suspension was ordered in February after the fraternity was cited for violation Ole Miss alcohol rules.
Associated Student Body Judicial Council officials say Sigma Chi will participate in formal recruitment and be allowed full rights to use its house. Members will live in the chapter house, eat meals at the house and participate in and host philanthropy events.
The fraternity will observe one year of social probation, which means no parties, through the Spring 2014 semester.
