2 SDSU Fraternities Punished After Drug-Ring Scandal


San Diego State University (SDSU) has expelled the Theta Chi fraternity and suspended Phi Kappa Psi. The punishments are in the wake of Operation Sudden Fall, the yearlong undercover investigation into campus drug sales. The undercover operation ended with nearly 100 arrests in May.

Theta Chi was kicked off campus for at least the next three and a half years and is expected to lose its charter from the national fraternity. Phi Kappa Psi was handed an 18-month suspension. The disciplinary actions become effective immediately.

Three other fraternities tied to the drug-ring sting – Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Alpha Mu and Phi Kappa Theta – were placed on interim suspensions that have since been lifted.
