Cal Poly San Luis Obispo sorority suspended for hazing
October 14, 2011
Cal Poly administrators have suspended all Alpha Phi chapter activities because of a hazing incident.
The sorority has 10 days to appeal the decision that stems from a hearing on Thursday.
The sorority pledge who ended up with alcohol poisoning told the Mustang Daily her sorority sponsor encouraged her to drink in the Sept. 28 hazing.
After arriving at her Cal Poly apartment, the pledge asked her roommate to call 911 and her mother.
“I was blacked out, (then) woke up in (Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center) the next day,” she told the Mustang Daily. “The police officer came in with the doctor and said, ‘You were in here for alcohol poisoning, and they’re running a hazing investigation.’”
Cal Poly officials determined that the events of rush week included students giving minors alcohol and then leaving them to fend for themselves.
