Dartmouth’s Alpha Delta Fraternity is under the Administration’s scrutiny after a hazing allegation recently came to light. Rumors of AD branding pledges this past fall reached the Administration when, reportedly, a sophomore member sought medical attention after the skin under his brand mark became infected.

AD is already under a multiple-term suspension for a number of alleged offenses, including serving alcohol to underage students and hosting unregistered events. In an email sent to Gawker from College spokesman Justin Anderson, “Dartmouth is strengthening and extending the terms of AD’s current suspension pending the outcome of the disciplinary process. If Alpha Delta is found responsible during that process, a range of possible disciplinary sanctions could be imposed including, but not limited to, probation, suspension, or permanent revocation of recognition.”

The full details of the incident are still unclear and will remain so until the College concludes its investigation and disciplinary process.
