The College has extended its suspension of Alpha Delta fraternity following reports that some of the organization’s new members were branded in the fraternity’s house last fall, according to a statement from College spokesperson Diana Lawrence.

AD is currently under suspension for policy violations that occurred in the winter and spring of 2014, but in light of the branding allegations the College is strengthening and extending the terms of its suspension. If following full disciplinary proceedings AD is found to have branded new members, which violates the College's standards of conduct, AD will face the possibility of probation, suspension or permanent revocation of its recognition.

The statement highlighted a “significant three-year history of disciplinary violations,” which includes instances of hazing, serving alcohol to minors and hosting unregistered events.
