GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - East Carolina University’s Student Government Association passed a resolution Wednesday night urging the university to suspend the Theta Chi fraternity from campus for 100 years.

The fraternity has been the subject of ongoing protests since ECU announced an alleged drink tampering at the fraternity led to a sexual assault.

The formal resolution obtained by WITN reads:

It goes on to say the SGA, “vehemently condemns sexual assault and the use of date rape drugs and the Student Government Association of East Carolina University supports, believes and stands with survivors.”

SGA Representative Calli Jon Massengill says the motion passed Wednesday night 31-2.

WITN also spoke with SGA member, Zach Griffin, who says he’s one of two SGA members to vote against the resolution to suspend Theta chi.

Griffin wants to wait for the facts to come out before action is taken.

The resolution will be sent to university officials on Friday.
