STORRS, Conn. (WTNH) — A sorority at the University of Connecticut has been suspended over a hazing incident.

In a letter, UConn officials say on March 7th, Delta Zeta forced guys with a frat to get drunk, eat dog treats, wear women’s thong underwear, and do body shots.

It happened at Mansfield apartments, one of the student housing facilities.

In a letter to the sorority, UConn said in part:

The interim suspension ofDelta Zeta includes the loss of privilege to host or participate in any chapter activities. This also includes the loss ofprivilegc for Delta Zeta members to participate in any outside organizations in which a member may be representing Delta Zeta. Should Delta Zeta not comply with this administrative action, or any other section of the Responsibilities ofCommunity Life: The Student Code, the organization will face additional violation notices from The Student Code in addition to any from this alleged incident.

“It doesn’t really change my opinion on the school,” UConn senior Kelly Bielonko said. “I still think there’s a lot of really good kids here. And you know, they’re going to have to learn from it, I mean, maybe appeal in a different way to get attention.”

The university is trying to find out what fraternity was involved.
