SAE was temporarily suspended from activities by the University on Sept. 28 and was also sanctioned by the national fraternity, according to both University Relations and LSU Greek Life. The punishment came in violation of University Policy Statement 52, which dictates how the University handles inappropriate actions by a student organization. Misconduct that qualifies under Policy Statement 52 is any action that “is contrary to the provisions of a University regulation and/or a local, state, or federal law or regulation.” However, no information was available concerning the reason for suspension. A representative from SAE’s national headquarters did not respond to a request for comment as of Sunday night. But members of the Greek community are saying the fraternity may be facing a ban from campus. A member of the Greek community who requested to remain anonymous said the offense that led to SAE’s troubles was sexual in nature. The incident happened earlier in the semester, but new details have recently emerged that suggest the fraternity could face losing its University affiliation.
