HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - A Dartmouth College fraternity that lost its recognition on campus after it was accused of branding new members is appealing a decision by town officials forbidding it from housing members at its residence.
Alpha Delta, which partly inspired the 1978 movie "Animal House," lost its appeal after a committee withdrew the fraternity's recognition as a student organization.
Alpha Delta was under suspension when the branding happened last fall. Its attorney described it as a voluntary form of self-expression, saying it wasn't a condition of membership.
The Valley News reports Hanover administrators say the fraternity may no longer serve as a residence under zoning ordinances. The frat plans to address the zoning board Thursday.
Alumni adviser John Engelman said people lived in the house in the 1990s when the fraternity joined others in relinquishing recognition to avoid college regulations.
