Tallahassee, FL - The business fraternity suspended at FAMU after hazing allegations is now suspended by its national organization.
We first talked about Alpah Kappa Psi being suspended last week.
There is an investigation underway about members being involved in verbal hazing. We've learned today, that the national fraternity has also suspended it.
The Managing Director of Operations, Brian Parker, says he has suspended the FAMU Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi.
He says this means that members of the business-related fraternity at FAMU are barred from activities, holding meeting, and doing any pledging.
Administrators at FAMU suspended the chapter last Thursday after a report of members verbally abusing prospective member in a meeting held off campus--and without an advisor present.
Managing Director of Operations Brian Parker says that he is surprised by the hazing allegations. He says out of the 227 chapters of Alpah Kappa Psi in the United States, Canada and England, FAMU is one of the strongest, saying it "performed well in all avenues."
At the time of the suspension, the FAMU chapter had 40 members and 24 pledges.
Parker says the national chapter will wait until the Tallahassee Police Department is done with its investigation before doing its own investigation.
He says if it is found that there was hazing, options include individual sanctions against students and/or the chapter could be suspended and closed for a period of time.
Tallahassee, FL - A Florida A&M business fraternity suspended last week on a hazing allegation is also facing sanctions from its national chapter.
On Wednesday morning, Alpha Kappa Psi Managing Director of Operations Brian D. Parker said it also suspended the Omega Xi Chapter of its fraternity at FAMU until it can determine the severity of the hazing allegations.
