University of Central Florida Student ‘Nearly Died’ During Kappa Alpha Psi Pledge Process



In a hazing investigation conducted by KnightNews.com, it was learned the University of Central Florida’s chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi engaged in practices that landed a pledge in the hospital in 2008.

The pledge was beaten so severely he “could have died,” according to an email a relative sent to the university. He allegedly was beaten with a cane.

The pledge spent several weeks in the hospital and had surgery for injuries he sustained pledging the crimson and cream fraternity.

Furthermore, the pledge caught a bad infection and “had to be transported by ambulance for 10 sessions for treatment in a hyperbaric chamber,” knightnews.com reports.

The pledge eventually crossed into the fraternity. UCF conducted an investigation, but found the chapter not in violation of hazing.

The chapter found itself in hot water a year later after another hazing allegation was reported. A pledge’s mother anonymously phoned the university to reveal her son had bruises all over his body.

The university wrote the fraternity’s national headquarters, which placed the chapter on an “inactive status.”

The chapter is no longer active on the university’s campus.
