Furman fraternity suspended until 2023 for repeated hazing, alcohol violations

A Furman University fraternity has been suspended until 2023 after repeated hazing and alcohol violations, university officials confirmed Monday.

An internal email from Connie Carson, the school's vice president for student life, said the Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter was suspended as a "result of repeated and significant conduct violations by the chapter, which include hazing, provision of alcohol to minors, and risk management violations."

Tau Kappa Epsilon members had previously been under police investigation after four women who attended a dry house party in September 2018 were hospitalized, according to a student organization conduct report posted on Furman's website.

The women reported concerns their drinks had been tampered with, the conduct report said, but a joint investigation by Greenville County Sheriff's Office and Furman police found no evidence that members of Tau Kappa Epsilon tampered with any drinks.
