The Theta-Theta chapter of Kappa Sigma was suspended last night, Nov. 2, by their international headquarters. 

Charley Pride, director of student activities and organizations, said Kappa Sigma International Headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia is investigating the chapter.

Pride said the university is unsure of what their investigation entails at this time and they are still in conversation with international headquarters to gather more information. 

“We’re trying to get more information ourselves,” he said. 

He said the suspension happened late last night and the chapter will remain suspended until the investigation is concluded. He also said Kappa Sigma has been advised by their international headquarters to not be involved with anything else. 

“Their headquarters has told them not to be involved with anything else,” Pride said. “Which means they are not doing Homecoming activities …and that is the Kappa Sigma fraternity decision, not the university decision.” 

The Herald will update this story as more information becomes available.
