INDIANAPOLIS -- Purdue University suspended the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity for four years this week, citing violations of alcohol and hazing policies.

According to a press release issued by the school, an investigation found the fraternity "violated several Interfraternity Council and university policies."

"In addition, the fraternity was found to be non-compliant with a four-year probation in 2013 stemming from incidents involving illegal drugs," according to Associated Dean of Students Jeffery Stefancic.

The 14 current residents of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house will be permitted to live in the facility until the end of the semester, at which time the chapter house will close.
