Ohio State latest university to crack down on fraternities after hazing allegations

Added: 19.11.2017 14:07 | 0 views | 0 comments


Ohio State University has become the latest US academic institution to ban on fraternity ceremonies amid concern that alcohol-fuelled initiations are putting students at risk. The move comes within days of Texas State University outlawing all "Greek Activities" - encompassing both fraternities and sororities - following the death of a Phi Kappa Psi inductee. Similar steps have been taken in recent weeks at the University of Michigan and Florida State University. There has been mounting concern at the human toll arising from the incidents of "hazing" at many universities in the US. Such rituals involve pledgees drinking copious amounts of alcohol in a very short time, with at times fatal consequences. In May, 18 students at Penn State were charged with offences including aggravated assault and furnishing alcohol to minors following with the death of Timothy Piazza, a 19-year-old engineering student. It is estimated there have been 40 deaths from hazing at US campuses over the last 10 years.
