Northwestern suspends fraternity activities as it probes drugging allegations
Northwestern University suspended all fraternity-related activities for at least three weeks as the school investigates reports people were drugged at on-campus residences.
School officials received a report Saturday that a person had been drugged without consent Friday in Evanston, according to a university-issued crime alert.
The allegation came one day after Northwestern received separate but similar reports about people being drugged without consent while attending a gathering, according to another university crime alert.
In light of the allegations, Northwestern banned all social events and chapter-sponsored recruitment activities at Northwestern fraternities in the Interfraternity Council until at least Oct. 17. That includes any events with nonmembers, including alumni.
