School says Tau Kappa Epsilon subjected new members to hazing

From The Arizona Daily Star: For the third time this year, the University of Arizona has suspended a fraternity accused of wrongdoing that endangered its members. The local chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon was stripped of recognition last week for what the university dean of students describes as an entrenched culture of disregard for student safety that involved multiple forms of hazing. An investigation found the fraternity, nicknamed "Tekes," subjected new members to "forced consumption of alcohol, extreme physical exertion to the point of individuals either vomiting or passing out (and) sleep deprivation."
