NIU frat president says social suspension negotiations going positively
DeKALB – Negotiations with Northern Illinois University to reconsider a three-year social suspension issued to the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity for policy violations over Homecoming have been “pleasant,” according to fraternity President Evan Johnson.
This past October, NIU officials were notified of several events hosted by the fraternity over the course of five days that violated the university’s Off-Campus Social Events Policy. The end result was the three-year suspension, a sanction Greek leaders called crippling.
Violations included failure to register events via the university’s online database, hosting drinking games, providing common-source alcohol, failure to provide a guest list, and failure to provide sober event assistants.
