Fraternity Camps Out to Raise Awareness of Domestic Violence, WABI Reports

WABI (Channel 5) reported members of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of Maine have been camping out on the Mall for the past week to raise awareness and educate other students about domestic violence and sexual assault. The group has been using resources from Spruce Run-Womancare Alliance and collecting donations for the organization, according to the report. “By and large in the media it’s been a fairly male-dominated problem, and I think it’s good to show that a lot of fraternities on campus and campus as a whole stands against this and stands fairly united to help eradicate this problem and raise awareness to it,” said Spencer Warmuth, a Sigma Phi Epsilon member.
