BOONE, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina university has barred a fraternity from campus until 2023, extending a suspension levied in 2017.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports that Appalachian State University has removed its official recognition of Tau Kappa Epsilon. The fraternity applied for reinstatement in April after the school initially suspended it in February 2017 over violation of school policies.
Jeff Cathey, Appalachian State’s director of student engagement and leadership, told a fraternity official in May that while the fraternity was suspended, he learned of several problems, including problematic social media posts about the fraternity and referral of several chapter members to ASU student conduct proceedings.
The newspaper says word of the decision was released last week by a law firm representing a student who filed a complaint targeting the fraternity.
