We wrote last month on hazing problems at schools and universities around the country and specifically mentioned the Texas case referred to above. Now, a leading fraternity at the University of Alabama has been disbanded for repeated rules violations, including hazing new members. The national board of Sigma Phi Epsilon revoked the charter of its Alabama chapter in late November. According to a university spokeswoman, there were violations of student conduct standards and rules against mistreating new members, the practice commonly referred to as hazing. Apparently, the fraternity is cooperating with university and local law enforcement investigating the allegations. Sigma Phi Epsilon is a large, prominent fraternity at Alabama, where it has had a chapter since 1927. The fraternity had 113 members on campus this fall. In my opinion, hazing is not only stupid, it’s dangerous and the sort of thing that has no place on any college campus.
