Student Honor Code Could Follow Vandalism At Ski Resorts

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – A task force has been established to help develop a student honor code at University of Michigan after fraternity and sorority members from the school were accused of vandalism at two ski resorts.

Bobby Dishell, president of the Ann Arbor school’s Central Student Government, on Sunday announced the effort to “encourage and motivate students to hold ourselves to a higher standard.”

Six national fraternity and sorority organizations suspended their chapters at the university because of the vandalism. Sigma Alpha Mu was the first fraternity to act. It was followed by the Pi Kappa and Chi Psi fraternities and the Sigma Delta Tau, Alpha Phi and Delta Gamma sororities.

The university says that members of the groups damaged the Treetops Resort and Boyne Highlands in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula in January.
