HAMDEN — A Quinnipiac University fraternity has been reinstated after the school found it was not responsible for hazing violations. Last month,  Beta Theta Pi was accused of hazing and suspended.

“The cease and desist order issued to Beta Theta Pi was lifted Wednesday after it was determined that the fraternity was found not responsible for hazing violations,” said Vice President for Public Affairs Lynn Bushnell.

It was the third fraternity on campus to be suspended in the last year for hazing allegations. Sigma Phi Epsilon–better known as Sig Ep–was suspended just two months ago, while Tau Kappa Epsilon–better known as TKE–was suspended in December 2014.
