BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTHR) - A spokesperson for Indiana University confirmed to Eyewitness News on Saturday that the Delta Chi fraternity has been suspended.

Chuck Carney says the university notified the fraternity on Friday. The suspension stems from violations of the IU student code of conduct and the Greek Agreement regarding hazing.

Because of that decision, Delta Chi has been told to stop organizational activities and disband as a recognized student organization. The students will have to move out of the house, but it's not clear when that will need to happen.

There are eight other Greek organizations on IU's Bloomington campus that are currently on suspension:

  • Alpha Tau Omega: Suspension effective October 8, 2015 (indefinite suspension)
  • Delta Delta Delta: Suspension by National Headquarters effective March 4, 2017
  • Delta Tau Delta: Suspension effective April 4, 2017 (hazing)
  • Sigma Gamma Rho: Suspension by National Headquarters effective June 2, 2017 (hazing)
  • Sigma Nu: Suspension by National Headquarters effective October 10, 2017 (hazing, alcohol)
