Boise State University placed three fraternities on interim suspension this week after campus officials found out about “large gatherings that violated university policies designed to protect our entire community from COVID,” according to a news release from the university.

The three fraternities — Pi Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Phi and Kappa Sigma — as well as 18 students both inside and outside of the organizations were notified of the suspensions Friday.

“Keeping campus open, safe and healthy has been our top concern, and we have educated our students about the risks associated with large gatherings. This included specific communication with students in our fraternities and sororities,” said Chris Wuthrich, BSU dean of students, in a news release. “Students who do not comply with university policies and orders will face sanctions, including removal from campus.”

The Dean of Students Office will investigate each case over the next several weeks, according to the university.
