IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Officials at the University of Iowa say a sorority has been temporarily suspended after an online video showed members performing a song that references binge drinking.

The university says the Delta Epsilon chapter of the Alpha Phi sorority received a notice Friday informing the group of an interim suspension. The chapter will not be able to hold organized events until a judicial board reviews the case.

A video posted on YouTube this month shows sorority members singing and dancing on the steps of its house on campus. Part of the song includes references to excessive drinking.

University spokeswoman Jeneane Beck says the video does not represent the school's fraternity and sorority community.

Alpha Phi chapter president Anna Kozak tells the Iowa City Press-Citizen (http://icp-c.com/1ijWr5J ) that the sorority is not commenting.
