The suspension on Phi Gamma Delta was lifted after it was placed on social and disciplinary probation, meaning they group can’t sponsor or participate in hosting specified social activities, as well as university-affiliated activities like homecoming, and it is allowed to retain university registration, but only on a probationary status.

A search warrant for the Phi Gamma Delta house was served by the University of Tennessee Police on Saturday, December 1. 

The chapter must also complete training from UTPD on social event safety, active bystander intervention on alcohol and sexual assault, and an Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards Presentation,

UTPD is currently conducting a criminal investigation. University officials say they are not allowed to discuss disciplinary investigations or outcomes involving individual students.
