Sanctions didn’t stop problems at frat at Va Tech

BLACKSBURG, Va. — A report shows that sanctions and volunteer oversight didn’t stop misconduct by members of the recently disbanded Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter at Virginia Tech.

The Roanoke Times  says it obtained a Sigma Phi Epsilon organizational report that shows a history of underage drinking, drug possession, assault and other misconduct.

The incidents include vandalism at the chapter’s new $5.1 on-campus housing facility. The newspaper says chapter members damaged and broke doors, defaced columns and damaged donor plaques.

The report says the chapter was placed on sanctions in February for hazing and alcohol policy violations. Recently, the national Sigma Phi Epsilon organization closed the chapter.

Sigma Phi Epsilon alumnus Sam Lionberger says there continued to be problems despite oversight by an alumni advisory council.
