Cornell University details hazing activities at suspended fraternity

Cornell University has released details as to why the Gamma Theta Chapter of Sigma Nu fraternity has been suspended.

After the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life received multiple reports of hazing involving Sigma Nu fraternity occurring in January, an investigation revealed that members of the fraternity had engaged in hazing activity at the start of the new member period, Cornell officials said.

These behaviors included picking up new members from their residences, blindfolding them and driving them around to various locations, according to Cornell. Some new members were screamed at while being driven around, and some new members were dropped off in a wooded area before being brought to the chapter house.

New members also were sometimes forced to drink alcohol and were required to drink mayonnaise "chasers" after drinking hard alcohol, a report stated. New members also were hosed with water while only wearing underwear.
