4 Greek Organizations at Gustavus Adolphus College Suspended

by Associated Press

ST. PETER, Minn. — Four of Gustavus Adolphus College’s Greek organizations have been suspended for a year or more, reportedly for violating the school’s hazing and sexual harassment policies.

Some members of the suspended sororities and fraternities maintain that college administrators unfairly scrutinize their organizations and overreacted to minor violations. They told The Free Press of Mankato that they chose not to challenge the suspensions because they felt intimidated by investigators.

A spokesman for the college confirmed that multiple student organizations were suspended but declined to provide further information, citing student privacy.

Suspended organizations are prohibited from participating in any official college activities, including fundraising and recruiting.
