The University of South Carolina has reached an agreement with the Kappa Sigma fraternity to shorten its suspension for alcohol violations.
Kappa Sigma was kicked off the school’s Columbia campus for five years back in December 2014 for repeated alcohol violations.
The State newspaper reports the agreement allows the limited use of the frat’s house in USC’s Greek Village during the spring. Full access will be restored in the fall. USC officials did not say what the fraternity’s members had done to reduce their suspension.
“Kappa Sigma alumni presented a plan to the university to establish a colony after a two-year suspension,” USC spokesman Wes Hickman said in a statement.
In all, three USC fraternity chapters were closed for violations during the 2014-15 school year. One, Pi Kappa Alpha, was restored last year while Delta Tau Delta’s chapter remains closed until 2018.
