ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Six national fraternity and sorority organizations have suspended their chapters at the University of Michigan because of vandalism that their members committed at two ski resorts over the weekend.

The national fraternity Sigma Alpha Mu was the first to act. It was followed by the Pi Kappa and Chi Psi fraternities and the Sigma Delta Tau, Alpha Phi and Delta Gamma sororities.

The university says that members of the Greek letter groups caused tens of thousands of dollars in damages to rented rooms at Treetops Resort and Boyne Highlands in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula on Jan. 16-17.

University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald has said that the fraternity and sorority members engaged in excessive drinking and says the damage they inflicted is “an affront” to thousands of “respectful, hard-working students.”
