CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon State University has hit the Kappa Sigma fraternity with a two-year suspension.
University spokesman Steve Clark declined to specify why the action was taken, other than to say it involved repeat activities outside of the boundaries of the code of student conduct.
Kappa Sigma president Billy Anderson told the Gazette-Times the suspension stemmed from an incident that occurred on St. Patrick's Day weekend in 2012. Police reports reviewed by the Gazette Times show the police investigated an assault there on March 18, 2012.
Clark says the fraternity can apply for reinstatement at the end of 2014. The house can continue to operate as a fraternity, but the suspension prevents Kappa Sigma from participating in Greek life activities that are available to recognized houses.
