Pi Kappa Phi was also placed on interim suspension following hazing allegations.

Pi Kappa Phi’s reported hazing included “intimidation, verbal abuse, harassment, alcohol consumption and calisthenics,” and Phi Gamma Delta’s incident allegedly involved the “consumption of alcohol,” according to the two statements.

Alcohol is prohibited from all recruitment and new member activities whether formal or informal, according to the University’s Recognition Policy.

Aside from operation of their residences, the fraternities have been suspended from all chapter activities, effective Tuesday, the statement said.
