Ohio

Bowling Green State University issued a statement Friday saying the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity would never again be recognized on campus

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) – A university in Ohio has expelled a fraternity where a student died last month after consuming an excessive amount of alcohol during a hazing event.

Bowling Green State University issued a statement Friday saying the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity would never again be recognized on campus.

Stone Foltz, a 20-year-old sophomore from Delaware, Ohio, was found by roommates and taken to a hospital in early March and died three days later.

An investigation found that ranking fraternity members forced pledges to drink an entire bottle of alcohol during an off-campus event.

Messages seeking comment were left with Pi Kappa Alpha’s national headquarters.
