Two years after an alleged rape at a fraternity house on the University of Virginia campus, the school is now suspending all fraternity activities.
The university made the announcement Saturday, days after this Rolling Stone article debuted, detailing an alleged rape of a female student by seven men at UVA's Phi Kappa Psi house. The accuser says it happened in 2012 and the university didn't do anything about it.
UVA President Teresa Sullivan posted a statement reading, in part, "I write you today in solidarity. I write you in great sorrow, great rage, but most importantly, with great determination. Meaningful change is necessary ... This will require institutional change, cultural change, and legislative change, and it will not be easy. We are making those changes."
