Just in time for hazing prevention week, two fraternities on campus are under investigation for criminal hazing allegations.
Two separate accounts of hazing were reported to the police on Tuesday, Sept 14.
Kappa Sigma and Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternities in question, have not made any statements on the current situation; however, a recent police report shows that the complaint made against kappa sig is unfounded.
LSU director of media relations Ernie Ballard says that if no criminal activity is found, student advocacy and accountability begins their investigation to look for violations of the Code of Student Conduct.
“So we want students in any organization to be comfortable with coming forward if they see anything like this,” Ballard said. "It's a culture shift that we've been making for years and we've talked about a few years ago, just showing that this is wrong."
LSU now has a scorecard detailing the disciplinary records of Greek organizations on campus.
If you or someone you know is being impacted by hazing in an LSU organization, report it to the LSU police department or online at LSU's hazing portal.
