A sorority at UConn, Kappa Kappa Gamma, was given notice of suspension over hazing incidents that included vast amounts of alcohol and what campus administrators deemed was the humiliating treatment of pledges.

“There is a preponderance of evidence to show that members of Kappa Kappa Gamma engaged in hazing behaviors including, but not limited to, forced consumption of alcohol, acting like animals and sizzling like bacon, which included lying on the floor and wiggling,” UConn Associate Director of Student Affairs Joseph Briody wrote in a letter to the sorority, NBC Connecticut reported.

The campus student code bans behavior that “threatens or endangers the health or safety” of students, including hazing and giving alcohol to minors.

The sorority sisters will have to move out of the Kappa house they have in Husky Village, unless they win on appeal, NBC reported.

“The university’s decision to revoke Kappa Kappa Gamma’s registration and recognition was not taken lightly, but it was appropriate and imperative in light of the severity of the circumstances,” university officials said, NBC reported. “The safety of our students is paramount.”
