MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WDTV) -- According to a statement, West Virginia University has opted to no longer recognize the Rho Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon as a student organization on campus.
The University’s statement:
The international headquarters of Tau Kappa Epsilon sent a letter to the Rho Chapter at West Virginia University today (April 25), which outlines several violations of the fraternity’s bylaws including: failure to conform to the fraternity’s Constitution; failure to obey WVU rules; and failure to pay dues, fees and penalties. Pending the completion of the Fraternity’s investigation into these charges, WVU has, in the interim, opted to no longer recognize the Rho Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity as a WVU student organization. WVU will re-evaluate this determination once the Fraternity's investigation is complete. All members are still subject to the University’s Student Code of Conduct.
5 News has reached out to the international headquarters of Tau Kappa Epsilon for comment. We are expecting more information shortly.
