No More Pledging For SAE Fraternity Members

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - A national fraternity is eliminating the controversial pledging process for new members.

This months after coming under fire for hazing incidents.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon announced the change that will affect more than 200 chapters and 15 colonies nationwide.

Locally, Salisbury University suspended the fraternity until the summer of 2015. According to the university, SAE violated its suspension by recruiting members while suspended.

In a statement the national fraternity said, "under the program, chapters and colonies may continue to recruit prospective members as they do currently. When they extend a bid, the college man who accepts the invitation will become a collegiate member."

Bloomberg News first reported the account of former SU student Justin Stuart,who said he was forced to stand in trash cans filled waist-deep with ice during the spring of 2012. The news organization also reports there have been 10 deaths at Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapters since 2006.
