LSU Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity placed on interim suspension

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU has placed the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity on interim suspension Tuesday for a fraternity event in August that did not comply with university policies. The move comes almost one month after LSU suspended the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity for similar reasons.

The Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity event that warranted the suspension happened several weeks before the death of Phi Delta Theta pledge Maxwell Gruver.

LSU issued a statement to WAFB about the interim suspension of Alpha Gamma Rho and Pi Kappa Phi saying:

"As a university, we approach each incident on a case-by-case basis and consistently follow established policies and procedures. Both Pi Kappa Phi and Alpha Gamma Rho have been placed on interim suspension of activities, as outlined in Policy Statement 52. This is a step outlined in the university's investigative process, and both fraternities are now under investigation for potential violations of the LSU Code of Student Conduct. This investigative process takes places through the Office of the Dean of Students."
