“We had a group of a fraternity that was visiting and had an excessive party and did damage on the resort. Food, beer, alcohol, the walls, carpet damage, ceiling broken down and furniture damage,” the Treetops Resorts general manager told local 9 & 10 News. He also said that the students had to be led out of the hotel by police.
The University of Michigan chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu released a statement Wednesday taking responsibility for a reported $50,000 worth of damage to a northern Michigan ski resort.
“We are embarrassed and ashamed of the behavior of a few of our chapter members at Treetops Resort over the weekend of January 17-18,” the fraternity said. “This behavior is inconsistent with the values, policies, and practices of this organization.”
The Sigma Alpha Mu members allegedly caused a reported $50,000 worth of damage. Two other UMich fraternities also reportedly caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to another nearby ski resort the same weekend.
