IU fraternity suspended for hazing

Local

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — An Indiana University fraternity has been suspended for reported hazing.

The IU chapter of the Delta Chi fraternity was notified Friday by the university that it had violated the IU student code and the Greek agreement regarding hazing, IU spokesperson Chuck Carney said. 

Because of the suspension, the fraternity is required to stop all organizational activities, and students will have to move out of the house.

It’s not yet clear when the students will move out because the students have an opportunity to appeal the suspension, Carney said. 

Carney would not elaborate on what exactly happened that led to the hazing suspension.

The following fraternities and sororities are currently on suspension, according to Carney:

  • Alpha Tau Omega: Suspension, Oct. 8, 2015 (indefinite suspension)
  • Delta Delta Delta: Suspension by national headquarters, March 4, 2017
  • Delta Sigma Phi: Suspension, Oct. 2, 2018 (hazing)
