Sorority Suspended Over Group Chat About Alcohol, Fake IDs


University of Central Florida officials have suspended a sorority chapter after a member reported her sisters were mentioning drinking, sharing IDs and paying others to complete assignments on a group chat.

The university suspended Alpha Delta Pi July 15. The Orlando Sentinel reports the sorority is accused of committing alcohol- and drug-related misconduct, violating laws and providing false or misleading information.

A sorority member who was studying in Paris contacted an instructor July 9 with her concerns about the group chat.

The sorority's national spokeswoman Beth Wright said the behavior in question doesn't align with the group's standards. They're working with the university to conduct an investigation.

The newspaper reports the chat included photos of young women holding glasses of wine and a Florida ID with the caption "selling this."
