Loyola University fraternity suspended, investigated for hazing

A fraternity at Loyola University has been suspended as the school investigates the organization for hazing, making it the second local chapter of the fraternity to be shut down this month.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon has been ordered to temporarily stop operations after administrators received "credible information alleging that the chapter is engaged in hazing activity," Loyola spokeswoman Kristin Trehearne Lane said Thursday.

No other details about the allegation were available. A national spokesman for the fraternity, which is based in Evanston, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Due to the nature of the alleged activity, the Office of the Dean of Students has placed an interim suspension on the Alpha Omega Chapter, pending a full investigation and final resolution," Lane wrote in an email. "Consequently, the chapter's privileges as a recognized student organization at Loyola are temporarily revoked until further notice."

Loyola's Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution will launch an investigation, Lane said.

Earlier this month, leaders at Northwestern University issued a campus security alert saying they received anonymous reports that as many as four female students were given a date-rape drug during a Jan. 21 event at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house. Two of those women reported they believed they had been sexually assaulted. Northwestern officials also received a report about another sexual assault at a different fraternity that was not publicly identified. The second attack may also have involved a date-rape drug, officials said.

The national headquarters ordered the Northwestern chapter, Illinois Psi-Omega, to stop all operations last week. Members of that chapter cannot hold meetings, attend fraternity social events or do any other activities under the Sigma Alpha Epsilon name.

The Interfraternity Council, which oversees Northwestern's social fraternities, indefinitely suspended social activities for those fraternities.
