CARROLLTON, Ga. - A University of West Georgia sorority closed over allegations of hazing had been abusing and harassing students for years.
That's the finding in a report obtained by the FOX 5 I-Team involving the Tri-Delta chapter. When the national organization and the University announced Tri-Delta would be immediately shut down, many family members complained, arguing that any hazing violations happened years ago.
But that's not the case. According to a University report the FOX 5 I-Team obtained marked "personal and confidential," Tri-Delta and the school found evidence of bad behavior at the West Georgia chapter from 2012 all the way through this year.
That includes hazing, intentionally harassing others, disorderly conduct, furnishing alcohol to any person under the legal drinking age, and possession of alcohol or any illegal or controlled substance.
There are seven violations, according to the letter, all taking place in all four years that were investigated: 2012-15.
The chapter suddenly closed last week, leaving many of the 100 members scrambling to find some place else to live. The letter says Tri-Delta can petition to be reinstated in the Fall of 2018.
But for now, the sorority house is closed, the name removed from the building.
