Historic fraternity Alpha Phi Alpha is being booted from the Virginia Tech campus after being banned for hazing.
WSLS 10 reports:
While specific details about the incident have not been released, the school says it happened in mid-January.
Virginia Tech leaders say they have a zero-tolerance policy and the chapter will be unrecognized until May 2026.
“When you have allegations or suggestions of students doing harm to other students, hazing is often attributed to fraternities. We take those allegations very seriously,” said Mark Owczarski, the assistant vice president for news and information at Virginia Tech.
The national Alpha Phi Alpha organization will make a decision to revoke the fraternity’s charter next year.
The fraternity has been on the campus since 1973 – the oldest black Greek fraternity at V Tech.
