Cornell bans frat for ‘sexually humiliating’ hazing
Ithaca (WSYR-TV) – A Cornell University fraternity has been disbanded after being accused of using “sexually humiliating kinds of activities” while hazing pledges.
The school said it has revoked its recognition of Tau Epsilon Phi for at least four years.
The pledges involved in the incidents were hospitalized after an alcohol related incident.
The school did not elaborate on the incident's exact details.
They did not say the fraternity members participated in any criminal activity during the incidents that led to their banning.
The incident reportedly occurred on Oct. 21, 2012.
Without university recognition, the fraternity may not recruit new members.
In February 2011, a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity member – George Desdunes – died as a result of alcohol poisoning during a pledge event.
