Punishment handed down to UA fraternities for alleged hazing

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA - AL -

Fraternities at the University of Alabama are being punished.

UA said, Thursday, after receiving numerous calls to the hazing hotline this week - action must be taken.

Action that includes suspending one former and two active members of Pi Kappa Alpha. Those students, according to the university, will not be allowed to go to classes or take part in any university activities without first seeing Judicial Affairs.

UA has ended all pledgeship activities as of 1:00 p.m. Thursday.

Greek Affairs, Judicial Affairs and UAPD will conduct a thorough and comprehensive review of all fraternities on campus.

One Delta Kappa Epsilon member told ABC 33/40 that his fraternity isn't going down without a fight.

"They want to suspend it for the rest of this year, that's fine," Jake Morow said. "I know for my new boys, at least, they all want to sign letters [about their] pledgeship. There's a lot of parents that still want to be with pledgeship, a lot of alumni...as well as me and my fraternity brothers."

Morow says he questions the allegations, saying the hazing hotline is open to anyone.

"Anybody can call the hazing hotline," he said. "It doesn't have to be a Greek member, it can be anybody and I don't see how that gives them credibility on the hazing hotline."
