A Kennesaw State University fraternity has been suspended for two years after a student complained about hazing.
It's the talk among fraternities and sororities at the university.
One of their own, Delta Chi, has been suspended for two years.
"It has definitely tightened the noose on all fraternities," said Sam Stevenson, a student at KSU.
Members of Delta Chi have been accused of hazing.
KSU says last month a student reported incidents of alcohol consumption, sleep deprivation and servitude.
The university is investigating.
Friday afternoon, KSU released a statement:
"Delta Chi is suspended from all activities, functions and gatherings for the duration of the sanction. Members of the fraternity are not allowed to attend fraternity or sorority functions as Delta Chi. They also are not permitted to recruit or conduct new member programs and may not function or operate on any level while the suspension is being served. The suspension will remain in place until the fall 2014 semester," said Dr. Jerome Ratchford, Vice President for Student Success at Kennesaw State University.
Many students say if the allegations are true, the punishment fits the crime.
"From what I heard, they had forced drinking or whatever and that was wrong. Obviously if somebody doesn't want to drink you shouldn't make them drink," said Stevenson.
"Drinking and being sleep deprived, that is insane. I don't think it should happen," said Mary-Katherine Bond, a KSU student.
Many people are hoping this is the last time the university will have to deal with hazing accusations.
"I think it is a big wakeup call to other fraternities," said Natalie Whitehead, a member of Alpha Omicron Pi.
Delta Chi has appealed the punishment. KSU has 30 days to respond.
