Florida A&M Investigating Sorority Over Hazing

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida A&M University is placing a sorority on inactive status while university officials investigate allegations of hazing.

The university announced Thursday that it took the action against the Delta Sigma Theta sorority after an incident was reported on the school’s anti-hazing website.

FAMU’s new assistant to the president for anti-hazing said the investigation could lead to additional sanctions if the allegations are true.

FAMU has adopted a “zero tolerance” policy for hazing in the wake of the death of drum major Robert Champion. Champion died following a hazing ritual that took place aboard a bus used by the famed Marching 100 band.

The band has remained suspended since the November 2011 incident. FAMU interim president Larry Robinson has not announced yet when the band will be allowed to return.
