MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The end of the spring semester at West Virginia University is also the end of the university recognizing one fraternity as a student organization.

A change in status for the Rho Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon is pending an update from the fraternity’s international headquarters.

This week, according to Corey Farris, WVU Dean of Student Life, TKE international advised the local chapter had violated the fraternity’s bylaws and constitution. The group is accused by its headquarters of also failing to obey WVU rules.

Until the investigation is complete, WVU has prohibited the fraternity from taking part in organized student organization events.

“Pending the completion of the Fraternity’s investigation into these charges, WVU has, in the interim, opted to no longer recognize the Rho Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity as a WVU student organization. WVU will re-evaluate this determination once the Fraternity’s investigation is complete. All members are still subject to the University’s Student Code of Conduct,” explained Farris.
