UConn boots sorority for 'bacon hazing'

HARTFORD, CT - Another day, another Greek organization shut down on a college campus over hazing — but the case of the University of Connecticut's Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority is rather ... unique.

Sophomore Hillary Holt is charging that she and others were hazed at the school's Sigma Alpha Epsilon frat house, and that they told to "lay on the floor and sizzle like bacon" and jump up and down and grab their ankles while chugging booze.

What's more, Holt said she was pressed to play beer pong, then blacked out — and woke up at the hospital, the Hartford Courant reports.

Kappa Kappa Gamma has been banned from campus until 2017, though students have until Wednesday to appeal the decision. According to the associate director of student affairs, the sorority "engaged in hazing behaviors including but not limited to forced consumption of alcohol, acting like animals, and sizzling like bacon, which included lying on the floor and wiggling," NBC News reports.

University officials added the "decision to revoke Kappa Kappa Gamma's registration and recognition was not taken lightly, but it was appropriate and imperative in light of the severity of the circumstances." An investigation into SAE is ongoing. It's been called America's "deadliest fraternity."
