Murray State lifts suspension of Greek life, updates policy

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) — A public university in Kentucky has lifted a suspension on fraternity and sorority social activities on campus.

The Murray Ledger & Times reports that Murray State University’s decision came Friday after a committee charged with evaluating the Greek social events policy at Murray State University presented an updated policy. Some changes include raising grade point average requirements and keeping better records of visitors.

The school suspended activities last spring following several incidents that raised concerns, including a death at an off-campus fraternity house and a report of a rape at an off-campus fraternity house.

Murray State Vice President of Student Affairs Don Robertson said the changes are based on best practices of other campuses and aim to improve Greek life.
