A fraternity at Dartmouth College has admitted to violating the school’s hazing and alcohol policies. 


Hazing is also illegal under state law, though legal standards and school policy differ. The college says it’s shared its information on the case with the Hanover Police Department. 


A police spokesperson declined to comment Thursday on whether the department has opened an investigation. 


The fraternity, Kappa Kappa Kappa, is under suspension through mid June and will be on probation through early 2020.

Officials at Dartmouth College say they’re taking new steps to deal with hazing on campus, especially in fraternities. That issue turned into a campus-wide controversy earlier this year, after Dartmouth senior Andrew Lohse published a piece in the student newspaper describing what he called “dehumanizing” hazing rituals in his fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
