The chapters of three fraternities at West~Virginia University were suspended this week. 

Sigma Chi's local chapter was indefinitely suspended by its national office and the WVU Office of Student Conduct. According to a WVU news release, the suspension was due to an April second social activity that violated fraternity and university regulations.

The suspension is effective immediately, pending an investigation.

Sigma Nu Fraternity's local chapter was placed on social suspension for the rest of the semester. The chapter registered a planned social function that included violations of the fraternity's risk management policies and procedures.

The reprimands come after Delta Tau Delta's local fraternity chapter was suspended Tuesday in response to a fraternity member's video.

Dean of Students Corey Farris says in a statement that the bar has been raised in terms of what the school expects from students.
