FAMU suspends student dance team after alleged hazing
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
Florida A&M University (FAMU) Interim President Larry Robinson has ordered the suspension of the Torque Dance Team following the accusation of an off-campus hazing incident. FAMU received an anonymous report on Tuesday that the alleged incident occurred during the Labor Day weekend.
According to the school's Office of Student Activities, the organization was inactive since December 2011, due to the absence of an advisor.
The University has officially launched an investigation. The group is suspended until further notice.
Earlier this year, FAMU suspended new membership intake for all clubs and organizations and implemented more strict procedures as a result of the death of band member during an alleged hazing incident in Orlando.
