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.


Say it isn’t so! Skinned knuckles? Push ups? Oh, the humanity!!!
