The business-related fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi has been suspended after an investigation was initiated into an off-campus meeting.
Members of the coed Florida A&M fraternity met off campus without an adviser. Members were allegedly verbally abused. No physical harm was reported, according to university officials.
New intake standards for clubs and organizations at the university prohibit off-campus meetings without an adviser present.
“At the very least (they) may have violated our clear rules for intake,” said Interim President Larry Robinson.
Robinson said he is “upset and disappointed to hear that another student organization may have engaged in hazing,” and indicated in his statement that a student had come forward with the information.
The investigation has been transferred to the Tallahassee Police Department because the incident took place off campus.
