University of Wisconsin-Madison disciplinary documents allege a fraternity was suspended for providing alcohol to minors and teaching members a song glorifying sexual assault.

The university’s Committee on Student Organizations announced Tuesday it has suspended the Sigma Chi chapter until March 1. A news release said the fraternity was accused of providing alcohol to minors at an Oct. 1 event.

UW officials released more documents later Tuesday that allege students passing by the house that night complained they heard a song glorifying sexually assaulting dozens of women at once.

4:46 p.m.

University of Wisconsin-Madison officials have suspended a fraternity chapter for serving alcohol to minors.

The university announced Tuesday that the Sigma Chi chapter will be suspended until March 1 after the Committee on Student Organizations found the chapter violated the Student Organization Code of Conduct.

According to a university news release, the fraternity served or permitted the serving of alcohol to minors at a chapter function in October and has a history of previous violations. The release did not elaborate.

The suspension means the chapter is barred from holding events and activities and from operating as a registered student organization. Once the suspension ends the chapter will be on probation with no alcohol allowed at any events until May 8.

The fraternity didn’t immediately respond to an email.
