GAINESVILLE Fla. — The University of Florida’s Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity has been shut down and accused of involvement in theft, hazing and underage drinking.

The Gainesville Sun reports (http://bit.ly/XhbigF) that the fraternity was shut down by its national board of directors last month amid university investigations into numerous conduct violations.

The chapter was placed on probation after a hearing held in early November based on a report of an incident of underage drinking in September at the fraternity’s house.

In the following weeks, letters were sent regarding accusations of hazing, theft and underage drinking. In each case, law enforcement notified the university of the potential violations of the student conduct code.

Officials haven’t given specifics on the incidents.
