Abstract from article below:

“According to UF records, the last student organization found guilty of hazing was Sigma Lambda Gamma, an 18-member Latina-based sorority, which was shut down for five years by its national organization in April.

The group imposed restrictions on recruits that included no Facebook, make-up or fast food.

Other recent hazing cases include the Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity, which was suspended for one year in November after recruits were found shirtless and kneeling on the basement floor, and the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, which was suspended for four years in July 2008 for activities that included wall sits and consuming large amounts of alcohol.”
