Frat Boys Cause $100,000 Worth Of Damage To A Northern Michigan Ski Resort

Being a fraternity brother may not be the first choice of students entering universities next fall. The latest fraternity to feel the effects of their ignorant deeds is the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter at the University of Michigan.

The fact that the boys were completely out of control and caused over $100,000 damage to a ski resort is bad enough. But when the boys decided to avoid accountability by not cooperating with the investigation that lack of respect prompted the university to withdraw their recognition of the Sigma Alpha Mu chapter on campus for the next four years.

Sigma Alpha Mu parent organization agreed with the university. Paul Mathieson (cnnireport) agrees that all the members of the fraternity have some serious soul searching to do. Some of the boys will face stiff disciplinary action by several different authorities and then there’s the question of restitution.

The incident started when members of Sigma Alpha Mu and the sorority, Sigma Delta Tau got together at the Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan. There were about 120 people in the group. When the party ended, there was damage to 45 rooms. Exit signs were broken, ceiling tiles were removed, furniture was destroyed and the carpets were filled with urine. Perhaps there wasn’t enough snow at the resort or there was a lot of alcohol to consume. Either way, there’s no excuse for that sort of behavior.
