CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State University has suspended the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity for five years because of hazing and harassment.

OSU spokesman Steve Clark tells the Corvallis Gazette-Times (https://is.gd/Qlx7NT ) that incidents date back to at least 2012, and involve alcohol consumption, inappropriate slapping and touching, and keeping prospective members in rooms bombarded with amplified music.

Clark says 17 members were interviewed during the investigation and they admitted wrongdoing.

Alpha Gamma Rho can apply for reinstatement in 2021 and then have a two-year probationary period.

If that’s completed without incident, the fraternity will be free of penalties by 2023 - its 100th year at Oregon State.

Alpha Gamma Rho had a chance to appeal the suspension, but didn’t. A representative declined to discuss the situation when visited by a Gazette-Times reporter.
