UI Greek members danced naked, records show

Members of the University of Idaho Delta Tau Delta Fraternity danced naked in front of guests at a social event in the basement “Rec Room” of their chapter house, according to an incident report on the Sept. 22 event. The report notes “it appeared to be only new members that were performing the dance.”

The records also show the incident was partially caught on video. The Argonaut received the report and other documents through a public records request.

On Oct. 6, members of Delta Tau Delta and Alpha Phi Sorority also attending the social event received letters from the Dean of Student’s Office in response to the incident. It said a video was shared showing behavior, according to the letter, “not only concerning for the Fraternity and Sorority community but is also concerning for the individuals in the video.”

Both the fraternity and sorority were on suspension following the events, preventing them from hosting events, but Alpha Phi’s suspension was lifted Monday, said Jodi Walker, UI Director of Communications. Delta Tau Delta is still on suspension from activities.

Walker said members of Alpha Phi underwent a three-hour session on how they will move forward and it was “very positive.” Alpha Phi is hosting a formal event Friday that was approved by the UI Fraternity and Sorority Life Office, she said. The chapter also performed initiation of new members while it was on probation, but Walker said it was approved through all the proper channels.

UI Director of Conduct and Community Standards Cari Fealy said the investigation is ongoing and no other information can be provided at this time.

Delta Tau Delta President Devyn DeLeon said that the organization is completely cooperating with the investigation. He declined further comment.

Alpha Phi President Hailey Uhlenkott declined to comment.

National organizations for the two Greek houses did not respond to requests for comment.
