 The Theta-Theta chapter of Kappa Sigma was suspended on Nov. 2 by its 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 the chapter’s investigation entails at this time. Pride is 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 Monday 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, such as Homecoming events. 

“They are not doing Homecoming activities with Phi Mu and their pairing, and that is the Kappa Sigma fraternity decision, not the university decision,” Pride said. 

Nolan Devine, the Kappa Sigma president, said he had no comment on the subject of the chapter’s suspension. He also declined to comment on how the chapter is currently handling the investigation and the current morale of members. 

“I have no comment on the subject,” Devine said. “If you have any further questions you can contact international headquarters … other than that no comment on the subject.”

Leo Brown, the director of chapter services at Kappa Sigma fraternity, confirmed that the information provided by Pride concerning the ongoing investigation was correct. 

However, he was unable to comment on the current status of the investigation, the nature of the investigation or when the investigation is suspected to end. 

The Herald reached out to Colin Perschbacher, Kappa Sigma public relations chairman, but he did not respond before publication time.
