NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Students at Yale University are voicing their concerns about alleged racist remarks at a fraternity house party over the Halloween weekend.

The New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/1KZrJEA ) reports that the Ivy League school held a forum Wednesday night at the Afro American Cultural Center that was attended by students, faculty and administrators. It followed allegations that a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity brother turned away female minorities from a party Saturday night, saying they were only letting in white girls.

Female audience members described discrimination, antagonism and sexual advances by white men on campus.

Some questioned why the fraternity was allowed to throw the party. The fraternity has been banned from campus activities until 2016 for violating the university's sexual misconduct policy.

The national Sigma Alpha Epsilon organization says it's investigating the allegations.
