Alpha Omicron Pi placed on temporary suspension


Lehigh’s chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi has been placed on temporary suspension for an off-campus violation of student conduct on Oct. 16.

The chapter’s suspension comes after two underage members were transported to the hospital for intoxication, according to Lehigh’s conduct records.

One member was reported to be uncooperative when approached by police officers. One member was found unresponsive at the Wind Creek Casino in Bethlehem. 

Simultaneously, according to the report, a third member was found passed out and non-responsive on East 5th Street on Oct. 16. The report said the student appeared “disheveled and appeared to have been walking through the woods.”

Alpha Omicron Pi is under investigation and is on temporary suspension until further notice. 

According to the report, the chapter is prohibited from engaging in any activities, both university-organized and unofficial, until further notice.
