BOZEMAN — Montana State University has placed a fraternity on interim suspension and warned students against attending parties in an area southwest of campus while school officials investigate reports that party-goers were assaulted and drinks may have been drugged.
MSU Dean of Students Matt Caires said the Hawks’ Ridge condominium development, which is known as “The Block” to students, has been the site of numerous parties since the start of the semester.
The university is investigating allegations that some drinks were drugged, two men were struck in the head and needed medical attention and underage drinking was allowed.
The school suspended the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity during the investigation. The SEA fraternity house is not in the Hawks Ridge complex, but several fraternity members are believed to have hosted some of the parties.
