    Quinnipiac Investigates Hazing Allegations Against Frat

    The Beta Theta Pi fraternity at Quinnipiac University has been issued a cease and desist order from the school amid hazing allegations, according to a university spokesperson.

    "The university has issued the fraternity a cease and desist order prohibiting it from operating at the university until the student conduct process is completed," said Lynn Bushnell, vice president for public affairs. "With the safety and security of our students being paramount, the university will simply not tolerate hazing of any kind by any group or individual and will act swiftly to remove from the community those held responsible."

    It is not clear when the hazing allegations first came to light.

    The frat welcomed its newest pledges on September 30, according to the group's Facebook page.
