Virginia Tech banned the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity from its campus for ten years after a pledge said he was blindfolded and beaten for several days earlier this year. Alpha Phi Alpha was the first black Greek organization at the university. The fraternity’s Theta Iota chapter was barred for abusive conduct and hazing, reports The Roanoke Times. According to national fraternity investigators, six pledges were blindfolded and beaten for several nights in a row in January of this year while being quizzed about the fraternity’s history. One of the pledges said he was hospitalized and that he withdrew from school. An executive order from the fraternity recommended that the chapter disband.
