Party’s over for frat after ski-resort rampage

The University of Michigan’s Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity has been permanently disbanded by its parent organization for not only wrecking a northern Michigan resort but also for not stepping up and facing the music.

“It is regrettable that these vandals, as well as the officers of the chapter, decided that avoiding personal accountability and/or university sanctions took priority over the welfare of the entire chapter; their lack of cooperation led to the university’s withdrawal of recognition of the entire chapter for a four-year period. Sigma Alpha Mu worked in cooperation with university officials and regretfully agreed with their request to close the chapter,” executive director Leland Manders wrote in a statement.

The statement said all members have been placed on alumni status and some face disciplinary action from “various authorities.”

The university itself was “pleased (the national organization) followed through with this action,” university spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said, adding the actions taken by both the university and the national group prove they took the issue seriously.

Michigan is still waiting for information from the police on individuals who might have been involved. No disciplinary proceedings have been started against any individuals, Fitzgerald said.

This end was inevitable, said Alan Greenberg, a member of the alumni board that owns the house. The chapter leaders “chose to protect those who destroyed this chapter,” he said.
