Here is an excerpt

Greek life – at least most of the affiliated social activity – is temporarily on hold at the University of New Mexico.

With three UNM fraternities already in “emergency suspension” following allegations of hazing or alcohol policy violations, administrators have ordered a two-month halt to most social events within the university’s larger Greek system.

The “social restriction” continues through Feb. 19, according to a Dec. 8 memo to the fraternity and sorority chapters from Vice President of Student Affairs Eliseo “Cheo” Torres.
