The Sigma Chi fraternity continues to rebuild at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, five years after it was suspended over hazing allegations.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the fraternity is recruiting new members to prepare for its official reinstatement on May 1.

The Sigma Chi fraternity house underwent a $2.6 million renovation and officials say hazing is no longer tolerated; members have been educated about alcohol and its dangers.

UNL Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan Franco says the fraternity has worked hard to improve its image and cultivate quality leadership.

Sigma Chi's recovery could serve as a model for another troubled UNL fraternity. Sigma Nu is facing disciplinary action after dozens of code violations were found last month.
