Clemson University is restricting sorority and fraternity activities because of concerns about alcohol arrests.
A university statement says it is a student-led decision in response to a rising number of complaints, violations of Clemson University policies and alcohol-related arrests involving fraternity and sorority members.
Gail DiSabatino, Vice President for Student Affairs, says the restrictions are regrettable but necessary for student safety.
Greek life students are allowed to build their floats on Bowman Field and participate in other traditional homecoming week activities. However, Greek life will be restricted for the remained of the fall semester.
