(LOS ANGELES) -- Pledge activities for all fraternities and sororities at California State University, Northridge have been stopped after hazing allegations.
According to a statement released by William Watkins, the school's vice president for student affairs and dean of students, the alleged hazing incident involved the fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha, which has been suspended by the school and also by its national headquarters.
"CSNU takes hazing allegations very seriously," the statement reads, "and we are deeply committed to protecting the health and safety of all students."
All Greek organizations will be forced to terminate pledge activities and no new recruitment will be permitted "until the university has been convinced that adequate changes have been made and will be adhered to."
"It is shocking and disappointing that this conduct persists after all the efforts undertaken by so many this fall to ensure a recruitment-and-intake process that conforms to the university's zero-tolerance policy on hazing," Wallace said in his statement.
