SAE Suspended from Campus

"Northwestern’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has been suspended from campus, a University official confirmed.
The University suspended the chapter after the fraternity “knowingly violated” its disciplinary probation earlier this year, University spokesman Bob Rowley said. An investigation into the chapter found SAE had been “repeatedly hosting parties and providing alcohol to minors,” he added. The suspension runs until September 2018, Rowley said."

[...]

"Rowley said the conduct investigation into SAE and the decision to suspend the chapter from campus were unrelated to the allegations of druggings and sexual assault reported earlier this year.
“This conduct investigation was handled independently and focused solely on determining any violation of the probation terms,” Rowley said. “It’s not an action taken because of the Title IX investigation.”"

Seems like there is overwhelming support for this decision on campus (excluding frats of course). Yes, they are not being punished for the slew of rape allegations launched against the brothers earlier this year, but better than nothing. Having SAE national headquarters on campus is just the icing on the cake.

Can't express how big this is though. Despite the "Sexual Assault Expected" moniker, SAE is considered to be the prime fraternity on campus.
