Kappa Sigma Chapter Suspension Lifted After Hazing Allegations

Cornell’s chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity was lifted from suspension Thursday after the chapter was suspended for allegations of hazing earlier this month.

The University was notified of the national organization’s decision Thursday morning, according to Travis Apgar, senior associate dean of students, who oversees the University’s Fraternity and Sorority Life.

While the suspension has been lifted, the chapter will still take internal action regarding individuals involved in the hazing allegations and the claims will still be put to the Cornell Greek Judicial Board, according to Apgar.

During the nearly three-week suspension that began on Nov. 13, Cornell’s Kappa Sigma chapter was to “cease all operations” and also remain alcohol free while the national Kappa Sigma organization investigated the allegations.
