Lehigh University's Alpha Chi Omega sorority lost its organizational status and has been banned from campus until 2020 following an investigation into some of its pledging activities, The Morning Call reports. In particular, the ban revolved around a scavenger hunt conducted in December.
According to Lehigh's Greek Community blog, the chapter "planned and executed a scavenger hunt that involved the use of drugs and alcohol, sexual activity, and other activities that violate Lehigh University policy." The event, called the "Road Rally" likely "did not only take place this year, but there is credible information that this event has been going on for years,” a Lehigh disciplinary committee explained.
Though there were no specifics given, the committee called the events that took place "reprehensible" and "morally questionable." The sorority's national chapter conducted an investigation separately of the school's and implemented their own probations on chapter members, CBS News reports.
Until Alpha Chi is eligible to come back to campus, they are forbidden from using the college's name or facilities. That said, they are able to appeal the ban.
