Although UNC’s chapter of the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity is working to satisfy sanctions from a November alcohol incident, the punishments are not expected to affect the fraternity’s spring recruitment process, which starts today.
In November, the Interfraternity Council held a hearing for Pi Lambda Phi, which was sanctioned for four alcohol policy violations made known after an underage person, who was served an alcoholic beverage at a Pi Lambda Phi event, was hospitalized.
Pi Lambda Phi’s president, Austin Hurwitz, could not be reached for comment.
Aaron Bachenheimer, director of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement, said the office was notified about the violations through an anonymous complaint.
According to the hearing outcome report Hearing Outcome Report_Pi Lambda Phi_Fall 2012-1.doc, the nature of these violations include having common source containers in the house, buying alcoholic beverages on the behalf of the chapter, giving alcoholic beverages to others, and failing to provide a guest list because alcoholic beverages were present.
