Investigation into Kappa Sigma fraternity chapter ongoing

Andrew Henderson

The Theta-Theta chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity is still suspended pending an ongoing investigation.

The suspension came on Nov. 2 from Kappa Sigma international headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Charley Pride, the director of student activities and organizations, said a representative from the organization interviewed several members, but this information has yet to be shared with the university. 

Pride said the university has not yet taken any action against the chapter. He said he has spoken to chapter leadership to ask them about the investigation and what they knew, but they said they did not know much of anything at that point. He has not discussed the suspension with them since the interviews were conducted. 

“Right now there’s nothing new to report,” Pride said. 

Colin Perschbacher, Kappa Sigma public relations chairman, declined to comment and said he could not discuss the suspension further. 

“At this time we have no comments on the suspension, and all I can tell you and your staff is to contact our international headquarters at this time,” Perschbacher said. 

Leo Brown, the director of chapter services at Kappa Sigma fraternity, said he could not comment on where the investigation currently is. Brown elaborated on Pride’s claim regarding who is interviewing members of the chapter, saying it was the district president. 

Although Brown declined to name who the district president was, he said this person had been appointed to investigate the situation. 

The Herald will have more information on this story as it develops.
