ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - Sigma Alpha Epsilon is a fraternity with a history of getting into trouble at The University of New Mexico.
"There have been infractions that have caused us to implement the code of conduct process," said Associate Vice President of Student Life for UNM Walter Miller.
Most recently, a UNM sorority member reported she had been raped at the SAE house during a party there the first week in April.
"Right now this organization is on an emergency suspension which means we deactivated their existence on campus," Miller said.
That means the members cannot hold or participate in any event or function but they can still live in the house.
"They need to be gone, I mean I cannot believe this is still happening," said UNM Graduate Amanda Kane.
The recent rape allegations bring back bad memories for Amanda Kane.
She told KRQE News 13 when she was a Freshman at UNM, her boyfriend at the time raped her at his fraternity's house, he was an SAE.
"He was being really aggressive that night and I wanted to leave and when he wouldn't let me leave that's pretty much when everything happened," she said.
That was in 2003. Kane pressed charges and her ex was eventually indicted by a Grand Jury but she said the case was dismissed after investigators lost the only physical evidence in the case, photographs of her physical injuries.
"You think that you're over it cause this happened 10 years ago ya know. I like to think that I'm fine now, there are still a couple of things that trigger post traumatic stress but this week has really been difficult," said Kane.
Since Kane's case there have been at least three other publicized claims of rape at the Simga Alpha Epsilon Chapter House.
In 2007 a pledge who was living at the house was arrested by UNM Police for raping underage girls there. Those charges though were later dismissed.
Then two weeks ago a student came forward saying she was raped at the house during a party members were holding there.
The most recent claims prompted UNM to issue an emergency suspension of the fraternity while it investigates.
Discipline is nothing new to SAE, in fact UNM said the chapter was on probation when it held the party the student was allegedly raped at.
According to UNM's Judicial Affairs Office the fraternity has been placed on probation twice and was even suspended for nearly two years from 2009 until May 2011.
The punishments came following various violations including hazing, damage to property and unsanctioned parties involving alcohol at their chapter house on campus.
KRQE News 13 asked UNM what it takes for an organization to get permanently booted from campus to which Miller responded, "I don't have the answer to that question, I don't know."
He added that he has yet to see an organization be kicked off campus for good, instead he said what they've had in the past is four or five year suspensions.
"Even if we suspend and we have suspended organizations, those individuals who were there to cause that action are not the people who re-institute the organization coming back," Miller said.
It is not clear yet what will happen to SAE this time around, they have a formal hearing set for next week with the university.
Miller said UNM does take the organizations history into account when determining discipline.
Kane said this is a clear cut case.
"I think that they've proven they are irresponsible and that they have no concern or consideration for the safety of other people and I think its time that the University of New Mexico takes that seriously and suspends them permanently from campus," she said.
KRQE News 13 asked UNM if it has considered getting rid of fraternity houses on campus altogether, Miller said he doesn't believe so.
SAE's National Headquarters issued a cease and desist letter to the chapter while it does it's own investigation.
