WVU Frats Trying To Clear Bad Name on Campus

WVU Fraternities Fight Through Negative Images

A few different fraternities on WVU's campus have been in judicial trouble during the past year, but some of the Greek organizations are speaking out about getting a bad reputation.

Last week a 20-year-old Morgantown woman reported that she was sexually assaulted at the Phi Kappa Psi house on Spruce Street.

Earlier this semester, the Beta Theta Pi House got into some trouble for an overcrowding violation during a party and some financial problems. The acts of just a few individuals could taint the whole organization... making it difficult for others to fight negative stereotypes. Some fraternity members say they are adamant about instilling a sense of responsibility in all of their pledges.

More than 30 social organizations on campus who rack up more than 3,000 hours of community service every year. And through the community service... building leadership skills.. and keeping alumni ties strong.. fraternities say they'll keep working to maintain their organization
Morgantown Police are still conducting their investigation for the alleged sexual assault.

The Beta Theta Pi fraternity is working closely with the university to overcome their financial problems.
