Delta Sigma Phi UM-Dearborn Suspension Lift
We the men of the Eta Kappa chapter apart of Delta Sigma Phi have been placed on suspension by our school Greek Life Coordinator. The following reasons are as follows:
1. Painting the rock- we as a chapter painted the rock at our school for our Founder's Day and we come back to school the next morning with it painted over. Someone graffitied over our reserved time on the rock for our founders day and out of frustration we painted it during the day at school. While painting we wrote on the rock blaming our rival, and then shortly after covered it. We assumed it was our rival fraternity which was a mistake on our part. We acted out on a specific group which was our fault. But later on, we also got painted over the next time we painted the rock, but we showed NO anger or frustration because we realized people don't respect us on our campus.
2. Broomball- one of our broomball games we had during intramurals with Theta Tau, another fraternity on campus, ended with wrestling at the end over disagreements. It ended very quickly and the game ended with us speaking with one another and shaking hands, recognizing that it is just a game and also a contact sport that you can not avoid.
3. Dancing and playing music at Greek Info Night- during Greek info night for the winter semester potentials, all Greeks were in Kochoff Hall at 8pm, gathering to induct people into our Greek community. We thought it would be a great idea to turn on music and have a little fun during the event, and we did. With the music on, we had a couple brothers dancing on a table, continuing with all Greeks dancing to the tunes and started having a great time. Everyone seemed to respond to the music and have a good time.
Conclusively, we are merely pointing out how we are looking at these events. All that sign this petition we are assuming you support our reasons behind each situation. We are not trying to cause any unnecessary drama, but merely fighting for our spot on our campus. We take everything with a grain of salt and we would like your support in fighting the reasons they put us on suspension for!
We thank you all for your support in advance, we love our campus and we hope it prospers. Our goal in the end is just that we'll be apart of the growth and positive endeavors at the University of Michigan-Dearborn
