An incident is under investigation at Duke University and all Panhellenic activities have been suspended until further notice after a new member of an unnamed sorority was hospitalized on Tuesday evening. According to the Duke Chronicle, the new member is in critical condition after “an incident with alcohol.”
There are not many details of the situation currently available. An email was sent to Duke’s Panhellenic community from Clarybel Peguero, director of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Anya Ranganathan, president of Panhellenic Council, letting members know about the suspension. An emergency meeting will be held this afternoon for all 10 Panhellenic chapter presidents and the Panhellenic Executive Board.
Peguero and Ranganathan explained that at the meeting they “will discuss the incident, review Duke’s expectations for all chapters and their members, and ask each chapter to review its activities to ensure compliance. The safety of members of our community is of utmost importance.”
