After an internal investigation, the Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) fraternity's national office has cleared its local chapter of wrongdoing in alleged alcohol violations that prompted CSU to pull its recognition.
"We've come to learn there were members who participated in the activity," said Eric Wulf, PIKE's national executive director.
However, the investigation found that the fraternity itself did not condone, nor fund, the "rise and ralph" parties that prompted the punishment on eight Greek houses. Other houses – two fraternities and five sororities – faced lesser punishments of social probation and suspension from campus events.
CSU officials were unavailable for comment Thursday.
