LSU’s Fraternity Booted From Campus Following Hazing Probe
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU officials say the Acacia fraternity has been closed after an investigation concluded that the group had hazed new members last fall.
According to LSU, the university was notified of several allegations against the fraternity, including forced alcohol consumption and physical violence.
The Advocate reports the university notified the fraternity of the investigation's outcome.
LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander said in a statement that hazing will not be tolerated at LSU. Alexander suspended the fraternity until at least 2018.
