Last week, Yale's chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was banned from campus until August 2016 due to a violation of sexual misconduct policies, but the sanctions may not be as bad as they appear.

According to a Yale Daily News report, many students on campus believe the sanctions against the fraternity will not have a real effect on SAE. The fraternity, like all Yale fraternities, has its house off-campus and its parties may not be largely affected.

“SAE is a very popular place and I don’t think it would hurt their numbers in terms of a rush class or whatever open parties they throw in any significant way,” a high-ranking officer in one of Yale’s fraternities said to the Yale Daily News.

One issue is that there is no governing body for Yale's fraternities, making it harder for sanctions to have a real impact. The national chapter of the fraternity also sanctioned the fraternity, forcing members to undergo sexual assault and harassment training.
