What it means to be a suspended sorority or fraternity at Ohio

A suspended sorority or fraternity is one that has lost all rights and privileges associated with being a recognized student organization at the University. Loss or suspension of recognition means that they cannot participate in any Greek-life activities and are prohibited from participating in any University function as a group, including Homecoming, BobcaThon, and Greek Week. Furthermore, those groups that lose recognition will also lose the ability for sophomores to gain housing exemptions to move into their chapter facilities. For all intents and purposes, a sorority and fraternity does not exist in the Ohio University community when it loses recognition.

List of Suspended Sororities and Fraternities at Ohio University

These sororities and fraternities have had their recognition revoked by Ohio University for various reasons, including such things as hazing, risk management violations, and/or failure to comply with University policies and expectations. These organizations have in almost all cases also had their charter suspended or revoked by their inter/national organization because they were not upholding the values of their organization and were engaging in behaviors that endangered their members and/or other students. In other cases, some groups may still be chartered and continue to operate without the recognition of Ohio.
