IFC Temporarily Halts Delta Tau Delta’s Rush

Delta Tau Delta’s rush was suspended temporarily yesterday. The fraternity was not allowed to open rush Monday morning and did not resume rushing until late Monday afternoon, said Patrick D. Kremer ’00, Chair of the Interfraternity Council Judicial Committee Chair.

“The IFC has suspended [DTD’s] rush until they sort through allegations,” said Neil H. Dorow, Assistant Dean of Residence Life and Student Life Programs and Adviser to Fraternities Sororities and Independent Living Groups. There were a “number of allegations raised against delts,” said Dorow.

Kremer said that the suspension was necessary because there were “some issues that needed investigating.” Kremer refused to comment on the specifics of the allegations against DTD, citing the IFC policy against badmouthing.

Members of DTD refused to comment on the allegations yesterday when reached at their house.

Dorow found out about the suspension via an email when he arrived at work Monday morning, he said. The matter was “handled administratively,” in a meeting between DTD officers and IFC President Michael V. Trupiano ’00, Membership Recruitment Chair Ranjit S. Survanshi ’00, and Kremer, he said.

“We came to a resolution,” Kremer said of the meeting. DTD is now continuing to rush as usual.
