CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A fraternity at Southeast Missouri State University has been placed on interim suspension after allegedly vandalizing the Shivelbine House.

According to the university, on May 18 there was a report made to the Department of Public Safety of alleged vandalism at the house, a property where the Sigma Nu fraternity lived in the spring 2016 semester.

Following the investigation, the Office of Student Conduct began a review of the incident to consider alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct.

According to the university, the Sigma Nu Fraternity was placed on interim suspension on August 9.

Additionally, during the review period, they say some people identified in the DPS investigation are not allowed in the Sigma Nu House, located in the new Greek Village.

As a result, the university said in a statement that all Sigma Nu group activities are restricted during that period. The interim suspension will remain in place pending a review by the Office of Student Conduct.

The university also stated Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 protects the privacy of student records, including those associated with alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct.
