Excerpt from Fayetteville Observer
No hazing found at FSU
By Sarah A. Reid
An internal investigation has cleared two college fraternities accused of hazing Fayetteville State University pledges, according to the school.
One of the cleared organizations was cited for a non-hazing violation of the Code of Student Conduct, the university said in a statement released recently.
The Epsilon Zeta Chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity was fined $250 and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service for holding meetings outside the presence of an advisor, said Jeffery Womble, the advisor for Alpha Phi Alpha.
The undergraduate chapter also is barred from attending some university functions, and it cannot recruit new members until after the spring 2010 semester, according to FSU.
Alpha Phi Alpha and the Delta Gamma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity were both cleared of hazing allegations levied in January, according to the university.
