  • Members of Delta Gamma were told of the decision made during a Tuesday meeting – with members being sent a message on social media.

  • Delta Gamma’s ceasing of operations becomes the latest incident involving alleged hazing and other violations on a college campus in Florida

One sorority at the University of Miami is being told to cease operations as the school investigates alleged violations of alcohol and hazing policies.

In a report from the school’s newspaper, The Miami Hurricane, members of Delta Gamma were told of the decision made during a Tuesday meeting – with members being sent a message on social media from chapter president Emily Gerstein informing them that all functions, including chapter meetings, social functions and recruitment must stop immediately.

The newspaper reported from sources that the decision was made after videos showing alleged hazing were posted on social media and later sent to administrators. The president of UM’s Panhellenic Association, Abby Washer, is a member of the sorority and denied the allegations to the paper – saying that there is “no proof” of them being true and the cease order was a precaution.

The school’s Dean of Students issued a statement to the papers saying in part “Given the very serious allegations and the University’s zero tolerance for hazing, the Delta Gamma Chapter was issued a cease operations order. A thorough investigation will be conducted by the Dean of Students Office.”

Delta Gamma’s ceasing of operations becomes the latest incident involving alleged hazing and other violations on a college campus in Florida. Earlier this year, FIU reinstated all Greek organizations after a temporary suspension for alleged violations.

Florida State University suspended all fraternities and sororities in November 2017 following the death of fraternity pledge and Pompano Beach native Andrew Coffey after an off campus party. Nine members of the fraternity have been charged in Coffey’s death.
