Fraternity Disbanded After Trashing Ski Resort

March 18, 2015

The national office of Sigma Alpha Mu permanently disbanded its University of Michigan chapter Tuesday after its members destroyed more than 40 rooms at a ski resort in January and nobody stepped forward to accept the blame. "The fraternity's board regrets having to take this action," Sigma Alpha Mu said in a statement. "The action was necessary as a result of: a) the lack of cooperation by those responsible for the damage in not coming forward, b) the chapter officers' refusal to identify the members who damaged the hotel property, c) the lack of action to stop the vandalism by bystanders." The damages could cost the ski resort $430,000 to repair, Detroit Free Press reported.
