Sorority is latest ECU Greek group suspended; investigation underway

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) -  Another East Carolina University Greek life organization is in trouble.

ECU officials confirm the school's Alpha Phi chapter was suspended by the Alpha Phi International group.

In addition to Alpha Phi, 12 Greek groups have been suspended, according to the Greek Organizational Accountability list of 2017-2018 on the ECU website.

Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Chi, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Delta Sigma Phi, Pi Kappa Alpha, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma Tau Gamma have been suspended, according to the ECU Greek Life Chapter Status website.

"ECU is aware of the decision by Alpha Phi International to suspend operations of their chapter at ECU pending the outcome of an on-going investigation by both Alpha Phi and the University," said John Mountz, director of Greek Life at ECU.


There is no word yet on what is being investigated.

Alpha Phi is the latest Greek life organization suspended or removed entirely at ECU. 

In February, ECU's chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was shut down.

In April, ECU's Phi Kappa Tau fraternity was suspended after police found 2,500 Xanax bars inside the fraternity house.
