Wiley suspends fraternity members after hazing allegations

MARSHALL — Several members of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity at Wiley College were suspended this week on allegations of hazing.

Joseph L. Morale, vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services at the college, declined to say how many members were suspended or what type of hazing activities they were accused of.

“The entire situation is currently being reviewed,” he said.

However, he said an on-campus adviser of the group also was suspended in connection with the allegations.

“We felt there was enough information in our preliminary review to warrant some interim action against this adviser,” Morale said.

Justin Tucker, a former chapter president and recent Wiley College graduate, said about six members were suspended on allegations of paddling students and mentally abusing them. Tucker said the on-campus adviser was accused of slapping the students.
