A Third CSUN Fraternity Suspended

California State University Northridge is a university that has a number of fraternities and sororities, but doesn't have a traditional fraternity row. In the past year or so it's had its challenges with its Greek organizations.This latest case involves Tau Kappa Epsilon also known as TEKE which has been suspended for allegations of hazing and sexual misconduct at an off-campus retreat.

University officials say: "CSUN has a zero-tolerance police regarding hazing... every allegation is investigated and disciplinary action is taken for any violations. We have made it abundantly clear how seriously we take these issues."

This is now the 3rd fraternity suspended due to alleged hazing. In July pledge Armando Villa collapsed and died during a rigorous hike in hot weather that the administration decided was a case of deadly hazing. Pi Kappa Phi was permanently shut down. In this latest case TEKE has been suspended for 6 years. After that, they can reapply, but there is no guarantee they can return to CSUN. After the last incident the school instituted a ban on all pledge activity some here feel is unfair, but the ZERO TOLERANCE is good.

We called the listed number for the fraternity. A man identifying himself as a TEKE member told us he had no comment about the situation.

The suspension for Tau Kappa Epsilon suspension is for 6 years after which they can apply to return, but there's no guarantee they will be accepted.
