Ohio University suspends frat after anti-hazing law enacted
ATHENS, Ohio (AP) _ A week after the state enacted an anti-hazing law in honor of an Ohio University student who died in 2018, the university suspended another fraternity for allegedly violating hazing rules.
The Athens-based school sent the Beta Chapter of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity a notice Tuesday that it will be suspended for four years.
An investigation by the university revealed a pattern of student code of conduct violations. It’s not clear what prompted the investigation.
The suspension follows Gov. Mike DeWine signing a bill into law that places tougher penalties for hazing at Ohio universities and colleges starting this fall.
