Hundreds gathered to protest in response to the sexual assault allegation that occurred on Tuesday, Aug. 24, at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s campus.
The crowd first assembled Tuesday, Aug. 24, outside of the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity house where one of its members is alleged to have sexually assaulted a UNL student in the early morning hours of Tuesday morning, according to the UNL Police Department.
Though the investigation by UNLPD is ongoing, protesters said that they would not stop protesting until the Greek letters were removed from the house. Protests continued for several nights after the allegation, and a candlelight vigil took place Aug. 30.
