Ohio University suspends 15 fraternities after hazing allegations

The OU Dean of Students sent a letter to all chapter presidents Thursday notifying them of the suspension.

The letter referenced the expulsion of Sigma Pi last year after hazing, and two chapters being placed on cease-and-desist earlier this week after allegations of hazing new members.
