Five out of seven sororities of the University’s Panhellenic Council are ceasing all interaction with the Sigma Alpha Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon until the end of the semester after receiving an email containing “inappropriate” screenshots of TKE’s group chats regarding a deceased sorority member.
The Panhellenic TKE Statement, released by HerCampus.com, stated that these emails contained “nude photos of multiple women, inappropriate photos and comments of female minors, comments of pedophilia, racial slurs, discussion of purchasing and distributing drugs, and hurtful regards towards a sorority woman who tragically lost her life.”
The letter was allegedly sent to all Greek Chapter Presidents, members of the FIU administration, and the FIU Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life advisors on Sept. 28, 2017. The Student Code of Conduct Board, the letter states, did not seek proper justice and did not go through a formal judicial hearing for what the letter alleges was a violation of the student code of conduct.
Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon, Phi Mu and Sigma Kappa will no longer have any type of partnership with TKE members, including events such as Dance Marathon, Homecoming, Mixers and Relay for Life, the letter states.
FIU Student Media will continue to investigate this story. We can be contacted at email@example.com.
