UPDATE: Alpha Phi national comments on "indefinite suspension" of ECU sorority
The national organization for an ECU sorority has provided a statement about the suspension of the chapter over the weekend.
It was on Saturday that ECU confirmed the Alpha Phi sorority was suspended for unspecified reasons.
The national arm of the sorority confirmed to WITN that the Delta Alpha chapter is suspended indefinitely.
"We are deeply disappointed in the actions of our members, and the severity of their actions left us with no choice but to cease all chapter activities. With more than 1,662 alumnae members from East Carolina University, it is our sincere hope that we might ultimately rebuild the Delta Alpha Chapter in partnership with ECU in the years ahead," said Dakotah Lindsay, Director of Marketing and Communications for the Alpha Phi International Fraternity.
The investigation by ECU and Alpha Phi national is ongoing.
An East Carolina University sorority has been suspended while both the university and national organization investigate.
The university confirmed Saturday that Alpha Phi has been suspended by its national organization and released the following statement:
"ECU is aware of the decision by Alpha Phi International to suspend operations of their chapter at ECU pending the outcome of an on-going investigation by both Alpha Phi and the University," Director of Greek Life John Mountz said. "We support this decision and will work with the local chapter and international fraternity to move through this process and support the students involved with this chapter. Due to the on-going nature of the investigation, we cannot comment further at this time."
ECU Greek Life would not comment about the subject of this investigation.
