Humboldt State removes Chi Phi after video surfaces

Here is the story link

abstract from the article

Humboldt State University has suspended the Chi Phi fraternity as it investigates possible violations of the student code of conduct. During the suspension, the fraternity will not be allowed to recruit new members or to use campus services that are available for recognized student organizations.

The suspension follows discovery of a video that was allegedly shown to potential new members during a Greek recruitment event. The video shows what appears to be alcohol use during fraternity events as well as actions that could be construed as hazing. These activities are strictly prohibited by University policy and potentially violate state law.
