Longwood Suspends Frat, 16 Charged In Hazing Probe
FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) – Longwood University has suspended a fraternity and more than a dozen people face charges following a hazing investigation.
In a statement posted Wednesday on its website, Longwood says 16 members and associates of Tau Kappa Epsilon have been arrested.
The school’s Fraternity and Sorority Life office learned about allegations of hazing within TKE’s Rho Kappa chapter in early September and notified the Longwood University Police Department.
Longwood didn’t provide details but it says more arrests are expected. The investigation by university police and the Farmville Police Department is continuing.
The suspects face judicial charges through Longwood’s honor and judicial programs.
