Sigma Tau Gamma at Penn State Suspended Through 2024 For Hazing Allegations

Penn State has suspended Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity through summer 2024 for allegations of misconduct related to hazing, the university*announced*Friday.

Penn State’s Office of Student Conduct launched a joint investigation with the fraternity’s national headquarters after receiving allegations of hazing during the new member education process. It also received allegations involving furnishing alcohol to minors and violating Penn State’s recruitment regulations.

Penn State recommended the suspension. Sigma Tau Gamma’s national organization revoked its charter on September 28 following an internal appeals process.

I can't say I'm very chuffed when houses are suspended for these amorphous "allegations of hazing" with no further details provided. Sig Tau can disclose whatever information they like but PSU, as a semi public body, should be more transparent and not engage in these star chamber trials of GLOs where a mere allegation precedes a finding of guilt.

I'm not shocked. After the Timothy Piazza tragedy, I think that Penn State thinks that it's better to be seen as cracking down hard (even for allegations) than to be seen as negligent and allow another terrible situation to happen.
