COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCBD) – The University of South Carolina (USC) has suspended one of its fraternities.

According to Jeff Stensland, USC spokesman, Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity was suspended by the university until fall 2023 because of alleged hazing.

The fraternity’s letters will be removed and all members will be required to move out of their fraternity house in USC’s Greek Village.

The university worked together with the fraternity’s national organization to decide the chapter’s punishment.

Lambda Chi Alpha released a statement attributed to fraternity CEO Troy Medley.

“The board of directors took this action in response to the chapter’s repeated violations of operational and conduct policies. “We greatly appreciate the University’s partnership and hope to return to the campus in a few years with a new group of young men who are committed to following our laws and living by our oaths and obligations and who seek to create an organization dedicated to service and leadership,”
