Associated Press Release

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida A&M University student is suing the university after it kicked her out over hazing allegations.

Aisha Sylvain, who was supposed to graduate this spring, wants a judge to block the dismissal since it would ban her from campus for five years.

A FAMU sorority was investigated for hazing in February. The Leon County Sheriff's Office decided against pursuing criminal charges in the case.

But a report said pledges were forced to do exercise squats and memorize information about sorority members during the gathering, which occurred from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Interim FAMU President Larry Robinson contended the allegations merited students being dismissed.

But Reggie Sylvain, who is from Atlanta, maintains his daughter did not participate in any hazing and that the university is on a personal vendetta.
