SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- (11/20/2017) Drury University is currently investigating a Sigma Nu student after he was filmed for a Snapchat video using racial slurs and flashing fake gang signs at the camera.
The video found its way to twitter on Thursday evening, garnering responses from all over the Twitter community.
Drury, issuing their own response to the tweet Friday morning, stated that they condemn any language or action that is degrading towards an individual or group of people, and that an investigation is underway to determine if this incident violates university policy.
The Epsilon Beta Chapter of the Sigma Nu Fraternity also chimed in, apologizing and stating that the member involved has been suspended until all the details are revealed.
While no formal complaint has been issued, the university's Office of Student Affairs still plans to look into the situation. A formal letter will be sent to the student notifying him of the investigation and asking to arrange a meeting.
Drury stated that just because they are sending the student a letter does not mean he is guilty of violating any university policy, it simply begins the process of looking into the incident.
However, they do take issues like this seriously and encourage students to report them so they can be investigated. If you need to report an incident, click here to be redirected to the university's anonymous web tip line.
