A fraternity that was indefinitely suspended after a student was hospitalized after receiving an alcohol enema will make its return to campus this fall.
In 2012, the Zeta chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha made headlines after the 20-year-old student was dropped off at the hospital with a blood alcohol content level greater than 0.4, which is considered toxic and potentially deadly. Several other students were found passed out at the PIKE fraternity house.
Now, UT and the national Pi Kappa Alpha chapter have agreed to reopen the PIKE chapter on the Knoxville campus for the 2016 fall semester.
According to a press release from Pi Kappa Alpha, the chapter was first established on campus in 1874, and had been recognized as a top performing chapter 28 times
