Zete is the home of the Kirbys, et al.  I just can't see it happening there.

Is it an alcohol/drug violation, or some ridiculous political correctness thing?

goes to an episode at a minor league baseball game, illegal rush and alcohol violations with minors…the usual I hear. Now will they let Chi Phi back on to take up the demand?!! IF true.

It is true. The Tau chapter has been suspended for 5 years (probably for good seeing how Chi Phi is still inactive) after a student not affiliated with Zeta Psi at the time got arrested at an Iron Pigs baseball game for an underage after purchasing beer with a fake ID in August of 2013. Due to members of Zeta Psi being at the game as well for the birthday of one of the senior brothers and for coordinating a bus that many took, the school ruled it a "Zeta Psi event" and a violation of probation and suspended the chapter. The decision occurred after a year of appeals of a hearing in a very biased conduct committee process made up of faculty and independent students many of whom are anti-greek. The school chose to make this decision despite enormous financial loses from Zeta Psi alumni and very weak evidence. What is particularly upsetting is first the fact that guilt in the conduct committee is determined on the principle of "more likely than not" not innocent until proven guilty which effectively had Zeta Psi fighting an uphill battle the entire process. Furthermore, the majority of the brothers in attendance were seniors who have now since graduated leaving the punishment (unnecessary to begin with) to be taken by the brothers not involved, in particular the now junior class who was not even affiliated with Zeta Psi at the time. This action leaves lafayette without its most influential fraternity from a financial standpoint and only 3 fraternities left painting a dark future for greek life on campus.
