WSU frat suspended after allegations of date rape

PULLMAN, Wash. – A fraternity at Washington State University was suspended Wednesday after allegations of date rape.

Officials said police officers were called to contact an 18-year-old female student, who said she was given alcohol and sexually assaulted at WSU’s Delta Upsilon fraternity. As police investigated, they found other women who told officers they suspected their drinks had been drugged at that same party. The rape victim told police she tried to leave after a night of drinking, but an unknown man blocked the doorway and refused to let her out.

After an emergency meeting of the Interfraternity Council Senate on Wednesday, they approved the suspension of Delta Upsilon by a 23-1 vote. The National Headquarters of Delta Upsilon also set an emergency suspension for its WSU chapter.

The Office of Student Conduct at WSU and the Pullman Police are investigating the allegations.

IFC officials said if the fraternity is found responsible they will issue repercussions.
