” Sigma Alpha Mu’s national office has ordered its University of Michigan chapter to suspend all activities for an indefinite period of time following a weekend of vandalism at a northern Michigan ski resort on Jan. 17-18.

  The university released a statement Thursday evening saying that the SAM national office’s suspension includes all meetings, chapter events, philanthropy, recruitment, candidate education, social activities and other Greek life activities on the Ann Arbor campus.

Remain
