The Sigma Alpha Eplison fraternity chapter at Washington University has been reinstated.
SAE was suspended in February after pledges were allegedly involved in a racist stunt on campus. The university newspaper reported that pledges were given a scavenger hunt and during the activity a group of pledges recited racist rap lyrics to a group of black students.
Washington University’s Student Life newspaper reports that a group of African-American students were having dinner in the Bear’s Den dining facility when a few students approached and took a photo of them. The fraternity pledges then returned with a larger group of people, and began reciting the words to a rap song that contained repeated use of the "N-word."
University officials have suspended the fraternity while they investigate the incident.
Mike Zissman, president of the Wash U chapter of SAE apologized on Facebook for the incident, calling it "detestable" and "completely unacceptable."
