UM: Fraternity Hazing

The Detroit Free Press reports that the University of Michigan fraternity chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity has been closed due to hazing allegations. The allegations are based on a parent email describing the hazing process members were forced to endure, including paying for strippers and drinking regurgitated water with goldfish. UM policy protects against hazing, defined as “any action or situation, with or without consent of the participants, which recklessly, intentionally or unintentionally endangers the mental, physical or academic health of a student.” [Source]
