OU repurposes former SAE house
NORMAN, Okla. — The house of former OU fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon will soon have a new use.
The site will be the new home of the Southwest Center for Human Relations and the Disability Testing Center, according to The Oklahoma Daily.
The Oklahoma Kappa chapter of SAE was closed in early March after a video leaked of the fraternity’s members partaking in a racist chant on a date party bus.
Two students were expelled and over two dozen more were disciplined after the incident.
“I think to have our offices there…. I think it’s fitting for transitioning to where the university wants to move (following the SAE fraternity scandal),” SWCHR director Kathleen Wong told The Oklahoma Daily.
