TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — Florida State University's director of communications confirmed to WCTV that the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter on campus has been suspended.
The university said SAE is facing suspension due to alleged alcohol violations, not for hazing.
This comes just a day after the university said it started an investigation into hazing allegations against the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, which is also under suspension.
A Florida State spokesperson sent the following statement to WCTV:
"While these allegations are disappointing, they indicate that the university’s education and prevention policies and initiatives are working. Students and their families are reporting concerning issues. Culture change is never easy but these reports are encouraging signs that the culture at FSU is in fact beginning to change for the better. FSU does not tolerate hazing and that message is being received by individuals and organizations across campus. We encourage anyone with knowledge of hazing and/or other conduct violations to report them as they happen."
