UCF Suspends All Fraternity, Sorority Activities

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ The University of Central Florida has suspended all fraternity and sorority activities until alcohol and hazing issues are addressed.

In an announcement Wednesday, the university administration said recent events indicate the school’s Greek community needs a change in culture when it comes to alcohol use and hazing.

No information on any specific incidents was released.

Hazing has been a topic of discussion and debate in Florida since the November 2011 death of Robert Champion.

The Florida A&M University drum major died after a brutal hazing ritual aboard a bus.

UCF officials said they will gather information on best practices from around the country to develop a comprehensive plan to address alcohol and hazing issues.

More than 3,100 students participate in 48 recognized Greek organizations at UCF.
