UNR Fraternity suspended

The University of Nevada, Reno chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha has been suspended by the university, according to Greek Life Coordinator Dennis Campbell. In an email, Campbell said, “The chapter is currently suspended pending a University investigation.”

The university’s Inter-Fraternity Council has taken no disciplinary action against the organization as of Monday.

Full Disclosure: I am a member of the local Phi Delta Theta chapter, and as such I do not feel comfortable reporting or writing an in-depth story about any aspect of UNR Greek Life. I’m only writing this post because I believe that it’s important for students and members of the community to know the truth. This post serves only to get the necessary information out for this story, and I would be more than happy to get the input or response from a member of Lambda Chi and post it on this blog. Please email me here if you want to comment.
