MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A fraternity chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been kicked off campus after breaking the terms of its suspension.

Eric Knueve, a spokesman for the university, in a press release Wednesday said the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity chapter was terminated for hosting events while the organization was suspended for previous violations.

He said a university committee had suspended the fraternity for several consecutive semesters for previous offenses. The committee voted to terminate the chapter after an investigation determined that members intentionally violated terms of their suspension.

Knueve says the fraternity will lose its student organization status, including the ability to hold events for at least two years.

Knueve says the fraternity can appeal the decision.

Fraternity spokesman Jonathan Pierce says the fraternity headquarters stands behind the Madison chapter.
