Theta Delta Chi suspended for hazing allegations

The Office of Fraternities, Sororities and Independent Living has announced that as of March 14, 2014, Theta Delta Chi fraternity has been placed by Cornell on interim suspension status as a result of credible allegations of serious hazing.

Interim suspension is a pause in the operations of a chapter during which the chapter may not engage in any activities other than operation of its residence. Interim suspension is used when a credible report is made indicating the actions of a chapter pose an immediate or imminent threat to students' health, or that members' actions are so egregious that the university is compelled to cease activities of the organization for the safety of the members, those joining or guests.
