After receiving a tip, campus administrators launched an investigation on Sept. 28. During the investigation, the university discovered the fraternity’s hazing ritual included late-night dunkings in the ocean and unsafe knuckle pushups that left some pledges with broken skin and bloodied knuckles.

Pledges, including minors, were also give large amounts of alcohol.

As a result, the fraternity is suspended for two years or until all of their current members are no longer attending Cal Poly.
