Student protests continue against USC Sigma Nu Chapter


Students at the University of Southern California protested what they say are systemic issues in Greek life and accused campus officials of failing to act and making conditions safer for students, according to one KABC-Channel 7 live broadcast Monday evening.

The protest comes days after allegations about drugs and sexual assault erupted at the Sigma Nu fraternity home. The chapter on fellowship has been temporarily suspended, and national Sigma Nu officials have said they will fully cooperate with the investigation.

Outrage over the accusations continued to grow, with students calling for everything from reforming the Greek system to abolishing it, students told KABC on Monday.

Protesters echoed many of the frustrations expressed at a rally on Friday where several students told The Times they felt USC still had not done enough to tackle sexual violence on the campus and hold abusers accountable.

Los Angeles Police also confirmed on Friday that Sigma Nu chairman Ryan Schiffilea was a suspect in a sexual assault case.

On Monday, a KABC reporter estimated there were around 1,000 students at the protest, which eventually broke into small groups as participants began to discuss solutions for campus security and what to do with it. must do with the Greek system.
