27 Dartmouth frat members accused of hazing

Posted: Updated:

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Twenty-seven fraternity members at Dartmouth College and the fraternity itself face charges of violating school policy after a former frat member went public with graphic hazing allegations.

In a column published in January in the student newspaper, senior Andrew Lohse said he witnessed Sigma Alpha Epsilon pledges being asked to vomit on each other and swim in a kiddie pool of bodily fluids. In response, the college recently launched a task force on student safety and accountability.

College spokesman Justin Anderson said he could not comment on the charges brought by the school's judicial affairs office. The students could be suspended or expelled if found guilty.

The fraternity's president has said the accusations were exaggerated, and in some cases, completely untrue.
