Fraternity shuts down chapter
A national fraternity has shut down a chapter at a local college.
Delta Upsilon announced yesterday the action against the chapter at Grand Valley State University after multiple drug and alcohol violations took place during the last 18 months.
Executive Director Justin Kirk said in a statement that "we hold our members and chapters to a set a standards," which the school's chapter couldn't sustain.
The decision was made following a hearing last month.
The fraternity said many of the violations took place during the fall 2016 semester.
Eileen Sullivan, the school's vice provost for Student Affairs and dean of students, said in a statement that GVSU looks forward to working with the national Delta Upsilon organization to determine when the school's chapter can return.
