Delta Gamma sorority closes GWU chapter
News


WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Delta Gamma sorority has closed its chapter at George Washington University, effective immediately. 

In a statement, the sorority said that members of the chapter have been involved in activities that are not up to the standards of Delta Gamma.  

According to a report by GWU's student newspaper The Hatchet, the chapter faced sanctions for hazing members, hosting unregistered social events and supplying alcohol to minors.

"When faced with the very real situation at our Beta Rho chapter, we had no choice but to act quickly and decisively. The high-risk culture, multiple violations and lack of adherence to our Constitution and our policies, along with dangerous and poor decision making, led us to this point,” Stacia Rudge Skoog, Delta Gamma Fraternity President said in a statement. 

The sorority officially closed the chapter on September 30.
