Marshall University Investigates Claims Of Large Parties

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University said Friday it is suspending Greek life at the West Virginia school after allegations of large parties held without masks and social distancing.

The university said videos and photos on social media and witnesses appear to corroborate claims that COVID-19 protocols were broken.

A separate report of bullying is also being investigated.

The university in Huntington issued cease and desist letters to 11 fraternities and sororities, suspending activities.

Director of Student Conduct Lisa Martin said the school "will not tolerate behavior that potentially jeopardizes our community's safety."
