SMU suspended the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity for two years Monday after the fraternity violated the Student Code of Conduct and University policies, Cherri Gann wrote in a press release, a university spokeswoman.

"SMU expects its students to uphold high standards of personal and academic integrity," Gann wrote. "The University believes it is important to take this action and expects the young men of the fraternity to learn from this experience." 

Specific reasons for the suspension were not released. However, The Dallas Morning News reported in February three members of Sigma Phi Epsilon were charged with assault and a fourth was charged with unlawful restraint for an incident in which they allegedly beat a student in another fraternity and held him for hours. The victim's fraternity had allegedly spray painted a door of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house.
