The Sigma Rho chapter was suspended by Beta Theta Pi in September 2017. It was possible that the suspension would end after one year but the national fraternity announced on April 19, 2018 that the chapter will be closed at this time.
The reasons for the closure included several violations of the fraternity risk management policies.
The announcement was sent by email to alumni and a press release was issued on April 19, 2018. If you are a Sigma Rho alum and did not receive the email announcement, contact us and we will forward the announcement to you.
It is expected that the chapter would return at some point. The press release stated that "The chapter’s charter will remain suspended and in the care of the Board of Trustees throughout this period of disbandment."
