NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Students gathered for a protest at Christopher Newport University on Tuesday.
They were upset because four students could be expelled. The University charged a number of students with hazing, underage drinking, distribution of alcohol to minors, and violations of the honor code.
Apparently the fraternity, Pi Lambda Phi, had a party in February where one of the new members, who was underage, got drunk.
The student was taken to the hospital unconscious and near death with a .40 blood alcohol level, a statement from the CNU Administration said.
WAVY.com learned he fully recovered, but the international headquarters of Pi Lambda Phi suspended its CNU chapter for the events of that evening.
A statement from CNU said the students who were charged have a right to appeal the decision.
