EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The University of Southern Indiana has withdrawn recognition and Phi Delta Theta's General Headquarters has removed the charter of the Indiana Lambda chapter.
USI made the announcement Monday night in a statement:
The national Phi Delta Theta website declares the group does not condone any form of hazing. The organization just celebrated its 15-year anniversary of an alcohol-free housing.
As for whether any USI students are facing criminal charges, Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding tells us the sheriff's office hasn't been called to investigate.
There's no word yet on where the violations occurred, or for exactly how long. We are hoping to get those questions answered and get more details during the university's scheduled news conference Tuesday afternoon.
