Booze Banned at Arizona State Fraternities

Arizona State University (ASU) fraternities have been barred from serving alcohol until further notice.

On Feb. 1, Greek Life coordinators met with seven fraternities, including Sigma Chi, Delta Sigma Phi, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Phi Kappa Psi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Pi and Tau Kappa Epsilon, and told them they could not serve liquor.

The move comes in response to increased complaints about underage drinking on and around the area where the fraternities are housed. Officials of ASU’s department of public safety say some of the fraternities were not managing their events with alcohol.

ASU is not completely banning alcohol but would like the organizations to have security ID party attendees. The school would also like fraternities to have guest lists.
