A University of Iowa fraternity is in hot water over alcohol. University of Iowa officials have suspended the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity on campus for five years. An investigation by the university found alcohol had been given to pledges at the Iowa City “Pike” house on October 20th. The frat house, which is supposed to be “dry,” is also in trouble for what university officials consider a bit of hazing of the pledges. The University of Iowa dean of students says the university is committed to eradicating all forms of illegal alcohol use and inappropriate membership activities by the Greek community. All fraternities and sororities at the University of Iowa are supposed to be alcohol-free zones. The alcohol ban went into effect in 1995 after a fraternity pledge passed out and died after excessive drinking.
