The Beta Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was placed on “Inactive Status” Wednesday due to an alleged hazing incident reported on Florida A&M University’s anti-hazing website.
The sorority’s regional office said in an allegation report that “a group of young ladies were meeting at an off campus apartment complex, and one of the young ladies fainted. It is assumed that because a young lady fainted there, paramedics were called.”
Bryan Smith, FAMU’s new assistant to the president for anti-hazing, emphasized that the university has made great changes in order to promote a zero tolerance for hazing.
“We believe that all of the measures that we have put in place have increased overall campus awareness of hazing. We will investigate this complaint as with any that is brought to our attention.”
The Leon County Sheriff’s office is currently investigating the incident.
