Sorority punished for hazing



Cal Poly suspended a sorority for five months beginning Oct. 13 because of a hazing incident that resulted in a freshman student being taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning.

According to a Cal Poly Student Life and Leadership press release, minors were allowed to consume alcohol at an Alpha Phi Sorority event on Sept. 28. The students were put in “situations where they were left to fend for themselves.”

Cal Poly has been especially watchful of Greek behavior since the death of Carson Starkey, a freshman who died Dec. 2, 2008, following a fraternity initiation ritual at which he was compelled to drink large quantities of alcohol.
