UConn revokes registration of Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority after hazing investigation

The University of Connecticut has revoked the registration and recognition of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority after a hazing investigation.

A UConn sophomore alleged that the sorority took her and others to a fraternity house in March and forced them to commit humiliating acts, including being told to lie on the floor and pretend to "sizzle like bacon." She said she was then pressured to drink alcohol to the point of passing out.

In a letter Wednesday, the school ordered the sorority off campus by May 15. Kappa Kappa Gamma has until May 14 to appeal.

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, where the hazing allegedly took place, is expected to learn its fate next week.

The school says Kappa Kappa Gamma can re-apply as a student organization in four years.
