CMU Fraternity Hazes Student With Peanut Allergy By Rubbing Peanut Butter On Him


Andrew Seely, a first-year student at Central Michigan University, suffered a severe and potentially fatal allergic reaction after he was smeared with peanut butter while being hazed at the university’s chapter of Alpha Chi Rho, commonly referred to as Crow.
Seely’s eyes, lips, and face swelled up after members of Alpha Chi Rho hazed him in back October 2016.

Via Detroit Free Press:

The incident happened in October, but Teresa Seely said her son kept the matter to himself until telling family Tuesday night. Now, she said, she wants parents and others to know about what happened to her 19-year-old son, who completed one semester at the Mt. Pleasant school before transferring because of the incident. She declined to identify the new school to protect her son from potential retaliation.

“He could have been killed,” Teresa Seely, his mother, wrote in a Facebook post this morning.

Heather Smith, a spokeswoman for Central Michigan University, said school officials are investigating the incident, however, university police have no jurisdiction because the Alpha Chi Rho house is off-campus. Local law enforcement, the Mt. Pleasant Police, said they have yet to receive a report on the incident.
Alpha Chi Rho was also banned for hazing incidents back in 2011. Similarly, the fraternity applied for reinstatement but was denied by the university and its interfraternity council.
The Detriot Free Press could not reach representatives of the national Alpha Chi Rho fraternity for comment.
Teresa Seely says her son is lucky to be alive due to the severity of his allergies.
