Administration officials say that fraternity members were blindfolded and branded last December. The exact number of students involved is not known, though one student reported the incident and a second fraternity member confirmed it.
The university’s 31 other Greek organizations are being placed on temporary probation while a hazing audit is performed.
The Pomona campus banned Sigma Phi Epsilon a year ago after a pledge was seriously burned when a member threw gasoline on a bonfire.
