Ban on Yale Fraternity Pledging Lifted



    Women's groups at Yale University were up in arms over derogatory chants sang by fraternity members.

    Pledge activities have resumed at the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Yale.

    The chapter got into some trouble after its pledges were heard yelling sexist and offensive chants around campus. DKE's national organization told it to stop all pledge activities in October.

    Yale's DKE president, Jordan Forney, told the Yale Daily News that the ban was removed in early November, less than a month after it was imposed.

    Forney told the paper that the chapter's new pledge class will be formally inducted next semester.
