ONEONTA – As COVID-19 cases multiply in the campus community, SUNY Oneonta President Barbara Jean Morris is cracking down, announcing late yesterday:

• SUNY Oneonta’s Office of Community Standards has opened an investigation into student  off-campus parties that may violate city law, and will discipline students or student organizations found in violation of the campus code.

• In response to complaints, the college yesterday suspended all fraternity and sorority “rush” and recruitment events, on and off campus.  “Rushing” is the annual fraternity recruitment process.  Any fraternity of sorority that flouts the order will face suspension.

• A sorority has been suspended due to allegations it violated the the Greek Code of Conduct.
