One of UCF’s oldest fraternities has been shut down indefinitely by its National Headquarters as of Wednesday evening.
The Beta-Eta chapter of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity at UCF has been closed and its charter revoked, according to a letter sent to Greek Life members by Student Affairs director Clay Coleman.
At a mandatory meeting for all members, representatives from the national office of Lambda Chi Alpha announced the closing of the Beta-Eta Chapter effective immediately with an unspecified time for returning, according to the letter sent by Coleman.
“The current state of the chapter does not reflect the core values of Lambda Chi Alpha, and there is no evidence the current officers can influence a change within Beta-Eta..,” the National Headquarters said.
Coleman stated in his letter that UCF supported the decision and representatives from the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Student Development and Enrollment Services were in attendance at this meeting.
The fraternity had been on disciplinary probation through the spring 2016 term after being found in-violation on multiple charges stemming from an incident that occurred at Lake Claire in September of last year.
