The Greek Judicial Board has recommended multiple punishments for a UF fraternity following an Aug. 30 party at its house where members served alcohol to minors.

At a meeting Tuesday, the board recommended UF's chapter of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity be placed on conduct probation through fall 2008, said Steve Orlando, UF spokesman.

In addition, the board suggested that the fraternity, known as Phi Delt, be prohibited from recruitment during spring 2008. The fraternity will also be barred from recruitment through fall 2008 unless it meets certain requirements.

The sanctions include performing community service, not holding socials through summer 2008 and only holding dry socials during fall 2008.Phi Delt is allowed to participate in intramurals and philanthropic events.

Gene Zdziarski, UF's dean of students, has the final say on the suggestions. If he approves them, Phi Delt can appeal the decision to Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs.

The board had already warned the fraternity about a similar incident, Orlando said.

Matt Helgeson, Phi Delt president, said the fraternity has offered to work with UF in whatever way possible.
