Delta Chi Chapter at Marshall Suspended After Hazing Probe

Marshall University

A Marshall University fraternity has been suspended after investigations into alleged hazing.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that The Delta Chi Fraternity Inc. said Thursday that the Marshall chapter’s charter has been suspended. The university also has suspended the chapter.

The actions were taken after the national fraternity and the university both investigated an anonymous tip of a hazing incident that took place at the fraternity’s house on Sept. 20. Neither organization would disclose details of the incident.

Carla Lapelle, interim dean of student affairs, said no students were injured in the incident and that alcohol was not involved. She said the chapter is appealing the suspension.
