GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A march in Greenville Wednesday called for East Carolina University to kick a fraternity off campus where an alleged drink tampering and sexual assault occurred.

The Stand with Survivors March was organized by a coalition of ECU students. It began at the ECU Main Campus Student Center and ended at the chancellor’s office.

Claire Abercombie, ECU senior, says they won’t stop protesting until the university meets their demands.

Students say they have been working behind the scenes to make sure all the proper permits are in order for the march. They have also sent a letter to the chancellor about their concerns involving Theta Chi.

Additional protests have been held outside the fraternity house throughout the month calling for its removal.

Greenville police say they are investigating the sexual assault allegation but were not aware of the drink tampering claim.

Last year, ECU investigated allegations of drink tampering at Theta Chi three different times.
