In November 2017, we reported that Ohio State University had suspended all fraternities due to instances of hazing and alcohol abuse. Now, in February 2018, nearly all the Ohio State University fraternities that were suspended in November have been cleared to resume recruitment events and, in many cases, social events.
The suspension of the 37 fraternities began in November after 11 chapters came under investigation earlier in the school year. One fraternity has been suspended for three years for hazing and other violations, and three other chapters were put under disciplinary probation.
Following the beginning of the 2018 Spring semester, OSU’s fraternity chapters have regained clearance to resume activities by submitting school-approved plans for conducting activities safely, including committing to hazing prevention efforts and alcohol-free recruitment.
All fraternities except one, that is: Zeta Psi.
All but one of 37 Ohio State University fraternities has had part of its suspension on group activities lifted.
In November, OSU suspended all recruitment, new member and social activities for its 37 fraternities governed by the Interfraternity Council. The school began lifting suspensions over the last two months and the group Zeta Psi is the only one that remains on full suspension, according to Ohio State’s greek life website.
While there’s no word on exactly what Zeta did to cause their suspension, it must have been pretty damn intense considering they’re the ONLY fraternity at the school that remains suspended.
