Miami University fraternity house ordered closed because of drugs, alcohol, hazing
OXFORD, Ohio — The Miami University chapter of Sigma Chi International – a fraternity founded at Miami in 1855 – was so out of control, it couldn’t be saved, documents show.
The local chapter in recent years had repeatedly engaged in hazing – initiation rites involving harassment, abuse or humiliation, officials said. Some members also repeatedly used illegal drugs, got into trouble with excessive alcohol consumption, and were “fostering a thirst to create and cause physical and mental harm to others,” the fraternity’s headquarters said in a letter to Miami administrators.
