Oldest UA fraternity to lose house in stadium expansion


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) The oldest social fraternity at the University of Alabama will lose its house to make way for a stadium project. The Delta Kappa Epsilon house is in the way of a plaza that will connect Bryant-Denny Stadium to University Boulevard.


University adviser John McNeil says the university plans for the fraternity members to start using a building across the street that now houses the university police department.


The DKE (Deke) chapter at the University of Alabama was founded in 1847.


It's not the first social organization to have to move because of improvements to the football stadium. Three sororities had their houses razed and had to build new houses during the stadium expansion in 1998.


Fraternities and sororities at Alabama own their own houses but lease the land from the university.
