Scandal Costs Willamette Fraternity Its House

The Sigma Chi fraternity at Willamette University has lost its on-campus house indefinitely following an investigation into Facebook comments that became public.

The scandal erupted in early May after comments from a private Facebook group of fraternity members were posted online. They included conversations that used sexually explicit and degrading language to describe women students and faculty members.

The Statesman Journal newspaper reports that the school announced Thursday that its investigation was finished and the chapter was found to have violated university conduct standards.

The chapter also lost its recruiting privileges indefinitely.
