BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A student attending Lehigh University in Bethlehem has been expelled from school months after a campus residence hall was vandalized.

The Umoja House, a multi-cultural residence hall, was egged and spray-painted with racial slurs in November.

A hearing was held this week to discuss the matter, and school officials said an unidentified member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity was expelled.

The school said the student acted alone and was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

The fraternity will be on probation through May 2015.
