Chico State Puts Greeks On Notice -- Again


As 21-year-old Sigma Pi pledge Mason Sumnicht lay dying at Enloe Medical Center, disconnected from life support after a Nov. 4 binge-drinking episode left him unresponsive and suffering brain damage, Chico State University President Paul Zingg announced that all Greek life on campus was suspended indefinitely.

Zing delivered the message to about 400 of Chico State’s 1,200-member Greek community last Thursday (Nov. 15) at the Bell Memorial Union. The college is home to 26 fraternities and sororities, all of which will receive instructions on how to be reinstated at the beginning of next semester.
