A University of Alabama fraternity has been kicked off campus after members admitted violating the school's ban against hazing.
The Crimson White student newspaper reports university officials announced a two-year suspension against Kappa Alpha Psi, the university's first nationally recognized black fraternity.
The suspension went into effect April 2 and will run through April 2005. The fraternity was also placed on probation until the spring of 2007.
The fraternity pleaded guilty at a recent hearing before the Office of Student Judicial Affairs. The panel, consisting of two UA officials and a student, did NOT disclose details of its findings.
The suspension means the fraternity will not be allowed to participate in Greek activities or recruit new members. The group also loses its on-campus house. Carl Davis, fraternity president, was not available for comment.
Kappa Alpha Psi has 34 members according to university records.
