EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A University of Oregon fraternity has been sanctioned after two drunken parties. The house was supposed to be dry.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1Q3M5Wc ) that a fall 2014 party landed Lambda Chi Alpha on probation until spring break. Then a post-break party brought a new set of sanctions that will last until June 2016, including a nine-month prohibition on parties with sister sororities.

A UO official said someone under 21 had been consuming a large amount of alcohol at the fraternity.

The punishment was handed down amid a change in how UO disciplines its fraternities and sororities.

Campus administrators, rather than peers, now respond to violations. The changes are part of an effort to prevent sexual assault.

The national Lambda Chi Alpha headquarters placed the local chapter under alumni control.
