BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — LSU students who are in Greek Life are being warned to stay away from a “rogue” fraternity.
The Interfraternity Council at LSU issued a statement Wednesday after Phi Kappa Psi started ignoring suspension guidelines. Phi Kappa Psi was placed on suspension in October of 2020 after a member was hospitalized after an alleged hazing incident.
Read LSU IFC’s statement below:
“The Interfraternity Council at Louisiana State University stands firmly against the formation and operation of rogue off-campus fraternities composed of LSU students. Fraternities of this nature directly violate the LSU Student Code of Conduct and consistently ignore guidelines created by the university to ensure the health and safety of all students. Specifically, the Interfraternity council condemns the recent actions taken by the LA Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, which was suspended from campus in 2020 for repeated incidents of dangerous hazing. The Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council strongly encourage their member’s chapters to refrain from interacting with and attending events hosted by the rogue LA Alpha chapter. For any further questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”LSU IFC
The council is made up of the fraternities on LSU’s campus and establishes guidelines for chapter processes and activities. According to its website, IFC’s purpose is to “promote unity among individual chapters; to facilitate relations between the IFC community and the University; and to see that all rules, policies, and regulations passed by the council are followed by the fraternities.”
Phi Kappa Psi’s suspension is set to lift on May 31, 2025, according to LSU.
