RICHMOND, Va. — As a result of “egregious hazing” in late March, according to the Associate Director of Programs and Educational Services at the Virginia Commonwealth University Student Commons Carolyn Whittier, Kappa Sigma fraternity has had both their national and university charters revoked.
The details of the hazing as of yet are unclear, but the incident was serious enough that a student spent four days at VCU Medical Center following a camping trip that took place in Essex County, Va.
Whittier said after the camping trip the student returned to his family home in the Richmond area, and then went to the hospital.
Whittier said she is not allowed to divulge details of the incident both in order to protect the student’s privacy and because it is a matter of the Judicial Board of the Interfraternity Council. The council is one of four organizations that all VCU fraternities answer to, and it declined to comment on the ruling. Full story.
