HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Another member from USM’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has been dismissed after student misconduct allegations, according to a released statement from Vice President for Student Affairs Thomas Burke.

Burke released the statement to campus in the student newspaper, The Student Printz.

The dismissal is in addition to 25 other members, who were disciplined after allegations of vandalism and violations of the university's alcohol and drug policy.

An incident report from campus police said the fraternity was serving a so-called "jungle juice" the night the incident happened.

According to school officials, the investigation did not produce medical evidence of any other substances besides alcohol.

Right now, SAE is on probation until spring of next year. The investigation into an alleged sexual assault is still ongoing.

Burke said his office will be conducting a series of open sessions over the next few weeks for students who have questions or concerns.
