Manhattan — Kansas State University officials are investigating a possible hazing that sent a student to the hospital with severe alcohol poisoning.
Pat Bosco, vice president of student life and dean of students, says the incident happened Sunday at an off-campus fraternity house.
He says a freshman was taken to Mercy Regional Health Center after being found unresponsive. Doctors treated him for severe alcohol poisoning.
He has been released from the hospital.
At Kansas State, the president, two other members and the chapter adviser of each fraternity and sorority are required to sign pledge each semester promising to comply with the university’s anti-hazing policy.
Kansas state law also prohibits hazing.
