The Nu Eta chapter of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity has been suspended from Quinnipiac University for two years.

“The university has suspended the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity until Dec. 31, 2021, following an investigation into an unsanctioned, off-campus event in October,” said John Morgan, associate vice president for public relations. “The safety and security of our students is our top priority and we take violations of the student code of conduct very seriously.”

A post was made on the fraternity’s Instagram account announcing that they are suspended on Thursday, but it was later taken down.

The Greek Week 2020 teams were announced on the QU Greek Week Instagram account on Monday. Greek Week is a series of annual events that take place in the spring semester of each year. Alpha Epsilon Pi was originally paired with Phi Sigma Sigma; however, this was changed several hours later. Phi Sigma Sigma was then added to Kappa Delta and Alpha Sigma Phi’s team. The original picture is still on the Instagram page because a competition was taking place throughout the week to see which team could get the most likes.

Q30 reached out to the Alpha Epsilon Pi national headquarters for a statement.

“Alpha Epsilon Pi International is committed to creating a safe fraternal environment for all of our brothers and guests,” said Jonathan Pierce, former international president and current media spokesperson of Alpha Epsilon Pi. “We are disappointed but look forward to returning to Quinnipiac University in the near future, so we can fulfill our mission of developing the future leaders of the world’s Jewish communities.”
