The University of South Florida chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha (PKA) remains under temporary suspension, preventing the fraternity from conducting business as usual until further notice is given.
The fraternity is under investigation for an incident of alleged abuse of one of their members that occurred off campus on Thursday April 8.
The victim had already been initiated into the Pi Kappa Alpha brotherhood. The several PKA members that allegedly abused a fellow PKA member are now facing possible assault and/or battery charges.
Kappa Sigma (USF chapter) member, Joseph Garrison said, “It not only reflects poorly on Pike (PKA), but on the entire Greek system as well. Even though the incident had nothing to do with Kappa Sigma, it gives us and all of the other fraternities at USF a bad image.”
Garrison is deeply concerned about what this may mean for the future of Greek life at the University of South Florida.
The legal and academic status of the PKA brothers in question and of the fraternity as a whole (PKA , USF chapter) is pending until the culmination of the investigation currently being conducted by the university. The Division of Student Affairs is also conducting its own investigation.
