CANTON, N.Y. – St. Lawrence University is suspending club rugby for four years in the aftermath of an off-campus gathering that school officials say included hazing.
Vice President and Dean of Student Life Joseph Tolliver says the incident April 25 involved members of both the men’s and women’s teams, with veteran members of the clubs hazing rookies. One student was briefly hospitalized with alcohol poisoning.
Four students also received disciplinary suspensions immediately. University spokeswoman Macreena Doyle says that because of confidentiality laws, the school cannot give out any specific details about their punishment.
