One of the two University of South Carolina fraternities placed on probation this fall for alcohol-related misconduct violations is in trouble again – for the same problem.
The Chi Psi fraternity at USC was charged Sept. 14 with possessing and consuming alcohol at its on-campus chapter facility before an off-campus social event, according to USC’s organizational conduct page.
As a result of the latest charge, USC extended the fraternity’s conduct probation to May 12, 2017.
The incident occurred Sept. 4, six days after Chi Psi was charged with possessing and consuming alcohol at an “alleged party” at its chapter facility in USC’s Greek Village. After that incident, the chapter was placed on probation until Dec. 31, 2016.
Efforts to reach USC officials and the Chi Psi chapter president on Thursday were unsuccessful.
