A popular Yale fraternity that lists George W. Bush and Dan Quayle as alumni has come under scrutiny after fraternity pledges marched on campus last week shouting obscenities offensive to women.
The fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon, has now been asked by its executive director to suspend all pledge activities on the New Haven, Conn., campus.
“DKE has instructed the Yale Chapter to discontinue all new member activities until further notice,” read a statement posted on the Delta Kappa Epsilon International web site.
DKE “strongly condemns the actions taken by some members of our Yale Chapter last week. The sentiments expressed during the new member activity are deeply offensive, and do not adhere to the standards of morals and behavior that we expect of all DKE members.”
