Utah State University Update
January 5, 2009
Chi Omega Fraternity is aware that hazing charges have been filed against the local Chi Omega chapter at Utah State University and eight members of Chi Omega in connection with the November 2008 death of Michael Starks, a student at Utah State. We are working closely with university and local officials and with local chapter officers and advisors to complete our internal inquiries and to make decisions regarding the future of the Chi Omega chapter at Utah State University.
Hazing and alcohol abuse is contradictory to Chi Omega's values and purposes and will absolutely not be tolerated. The activities of the Chi Omega chapter at Utah State University remain suspended by the Fraternity and university until further notice.
Chi Omega continues to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Michael Starks.
