10. Frat Trashes Ski Resort
In early 2015, the University of Michigan’s Sigma Alpha Mu destroyed 45 rooms at Treetops Resort, a ski lodge near Gaylord, Michigan. The group broke ceiling tiles, destroyed furniture, and smashed windows, resulting in over $430,000 in damages. Officials at the resort said the fraternity was “unwilling to accept liability and pay restitution,” despite contrary claims from the organization’s president.
The University quickly suspended the fraternity for four years and the University’s president asked the national fraternity’s council to pull its charter, handing down “the most severe sanction that can be implemented against any campus student organization.” Three individuals have since been criminally charged for their involvement in the incident.
