LOGAN-- A Utah State University fraternity is being placed on a one-year suspension after an underage girl suffered alcohol poisoning following a party during homecoming week.
The school's Greek Council says the Gamma Epsilon chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha will be banned from having alcohol and must pay a $500 fine to the council, which is composed of representatives from the college's fraternity and sorority community.
The Herald Journal reports (http://bit.ly/yLl5Kd) the sanctions will last until Sept. 30 because the fraternity was suspended after the Sept. 25 party at the fraternity house.
Members must also maintain a cumulative 2.8 GPA and perform 30 hours of community service each.
Two men have been charged with misdemeanors in the case, and the then-17-year-old girl has been referred to juvenile court for possible action.
