Excerpt on Western Kentucky University hazing from the Herald. Click on above link for longer story, please.
Kappa Delta sorority, Kappa Alpha Order fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity were all cited for hazing and “organizing, sponsoring, implementing or conducting programs or activities which are violations of the law or university regulations,” according to the official sanctions provided to the Herald.
The Alphas have lost all university recognition until Aug. 15, 2013, and cannot participate in any university-sanctioned events nor recruit new members until after this date, according to an undated letter to the Alphas from Charley Pride, director of Student Activities and Organizations.
The KAs and SAEs have lost recognition as a student organization until May 14, cannot participate in WKU Greek events until May and cannot recruit new members until fall 2012, according to undated letters to the individual fraternities from Pride.
Kappa Delta, the only sorority cited last semester, is on probation until May 14, according to a letter from Pride. The chapter must also participate in two educational programs — one of which must focus on hazing, and each active member at the time of the incident must complete two hours of community service by March 9. The chapter is also ineligible for achievement awards.
