We've heard about the crazy and dangerous things that fraternities have made their pledges do. But now a sorority is in hot water after allegedly forcing a member to lie on the floor and "sizzle like bacon," then drink alcohol until she passed out.
Fox News Friday reported on Friday that the University of Connecticut sent its Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter a letter informing it that its registration and recognition had been revoked after an investigation into the hazing allegation.
Kappa didn't immediately respond to email requests for comment . It was given until 4 p.m. on May 15 to vacate its on-campus house and has until May 14 to file an appeal.
School spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said,"UConn has zero tolerance for hazing and all similarly harmful behaviors, and repeatedly makes those expectations clear to all student leaders in Greek life and other organizations. The university's decision to revoke Kappa Kappa Gamma's registration and recognition was not taken lightly, but it was appropriate and imperative in light of the severity of the circumstances."
The sorority may re-apply as a student organization in four years.
UConn sophomore and Kappa Kappa Gamma member Hillary Holt told reporters she was taken to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house on March 6, she and other members were forced to commit humiliating acts. She said she was told to lie on the floor and pretend to "sizzle like bacon" and pressured to drink alcohol to the point of passing out.
Holt said she woke up in a hospital and was told her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08.
The sorority's national chapter says it does not tolerate hazing and "will continue to be an advocate for anti-hazing education across the country."
The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will to learn its fate after a review meeting next week.
Other incidents at the school are being looked into at three other Greek organizations. Delta Zeta, Delta Gamma and Sigma Chi were placed on suspension in April due to allegations that men were forced during off-campus parties to eat dog treats, paint their bodies, wear women's underwear and take alcohol shots off each other's bodies.
