TUCSON, Ariz. — A University of Arizona building that housed a now
disgraced fraternity is being converted into high-end student housing.
The Arizona Daily Star reported Saturday that the
university is remodeling the $1.8 million Greek Row house to fit approximately
62 students along with two residence advisers.
Rent will range from $7,000 to $7,800 per academic year.
The house was formerly occupied by Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, which has been
investigated for hazing and serving alcohol to minors.
The fraternity’s national office has also severed ties with the chapter.
Authorities have been trying to determine if the fraternity played a role in
the death of 19-year-old Michael Evan Anderson.
Police said Anderson was legally drunk when he died after falling from a 20-foot
tall ventilation tower in April.
