LOS ANGELES (AP) - All fraternity and sorority pledging activities at Cal State Northridge have been suspended while Pi Kappa Alpha is investigated for possible hazing.

It was just four months ago that 19-year-old CSUN student Armando Villa, a Pi Kappa Phi pledge, died during a mandatory pledge hike.

The Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/1rtj4RD ) reported Friday that students learned about the suspension and investigation through a letter from Dean of Students William Watkins that was published in the campus newspaper the Daily Sundial.

The school says pledges can still be inducted, but no further pledge activity will be allowed.

Pi Kappa Phi voted to voluntarily shut down its CSUN chapter after Villa’s death.

No details of the Pi Kappa Alpha incident were released.
