Sigma Kappa Sorority hazing charged at Carbondale

Here is the story link and an excerpt.

“Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity has been suspended for four years and Sigma Kappa sorority, the university’s largest sorority with over 60 members, has been suspended until August 2021 after it was revealed fraternity affiliates were hazed, and in some instances, in coordination with the organizations’ leadership.

Four other fraternities were also involved in coordinating hazing with Sigma Kappa — amounting to the hazing of over 100 men in SIU’s fraternity community, according to an internal November 2019 email.”
