University Of Miami Suspends Sorority For Alleged Hazing, Alcohol Abuse

Another Florida University is suspending a Greek program following a hazing incident.

The University of Miami has informed the Delta Gamma sorority to cease operations immediately. 

"The University of Miami Dean of Students Office received a report alleging that members of the Delta Gamma Fraternity were involved in events that are in violation of the university's alcohol and hazing policies," the university said in a statement, according to a report by Local 10. 

"Given the very serious allegations and the university's zero tolerance for hazing, the Delta Gamma chapter was issued a cease operations order. A thorough investigation will be conducted by the Dean of Students Office to determine if the organization and/or individual members violated any university policies. Anyone or any organization found responsible for violating any policies will be held accountable."

All functions, including chapter meetings, social events and recruitment have been halted.

"Delta Gamma Fraternity is working closely with the university to investigate and address any behaviors that do not align with our values and fraternity standards," Delta Gamma's national president, Stacia Rudge Skoog, said in a statement.

The sorority made headlines in 2016 for its recruitment video showcasing bikini-clad sorority sisters.
