The University of Virginia plans to revoke agreements with two fraternities that have been part of Wahoo life since the 19th century. UVA officials are not saying much about their actions against Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Nu, but they indicate they are in hot water because of the new member education process. That’s another way of saying hazing. Those who live in the PiKA and Sigma Nu houses are allowed to stay until their current leases expire.
