The University of Dayton has suspended a fraternity on accusations that the members forced an underage student to drink.

During a hazing incident on Friday, Oct. 21, 2011, Phi Kappa Psi forced a newly selected, underage member to consume excessive alcohol, according to Bill Fischer, vice president for student development. The student was taken by rescue squad to the hospital, where he was treated and released, he said.

UD has withdrawn recognition of the fraternity, including its designated fraternity house, until Jan. 1, 2013. During the suspension, the fraternity is prohibited from holding any organizational meetings, events or gatherings, Fischer said.
