All new member activities in Elon University’s Kappa Sigma, Lambda-Lambda chapter have been suspended, according to an email from Smith Jackson, vice president for student life.
Jackson said the suspension was in response to an investigation involving new members in the fraternity who were found by police in a Virginia cemetery early in the morning March 4.
When the students were approached they told the police they were there to pay their respects.
The cemetery in Abingdon, Virginia– a town of around 8,000 people that is approximately three hours northwest of Elon – is home to one of Kappa Sigma’s founders.
Jackson said the group did not damage property but was cited for trespassing in the cemetery.
This marked the third incident in four months involving an Elon fraternity.
