University of Science and Technology in Rolla is temporarily suspended

until days later on Sunday, October 16th. School officials say that during
the suspension the fraternity will not be recognized as a student organization
nor will it have access to university facilities. The fraternity house
will close, and any students living in there will need to move out and
find other accommodations. School officials say Alpha Phi Alpha has been
