(BLOOMINGTON) - The Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity at Indiana University is being punished after it was accused of hazing.

The fraternity is facing a number of sanctions after an investigation by Indiana University's Offices of Student Ethics and Student Life and Learning, and the fraternity's headquarters in Indianapolis.

The Herald Times reports that the investigation began after an anonymous report was made in mid-January through the Student Life and Learning website reporting the incidents occurred during the fall semester of 2015, and involved subjecting pledges to servitude, mental hazing and physical hazing.

After an investigation, the fraternity is now on deferred suspension until December 31. Any violation from now until that date will result in the immediate removal of the chapter from IU.

For the suspension to be deferred, the fraternity chapter had to agree to a long list of educational and punitive sanctions.

This is the ninth fraternity chapter at IU to be subject to discipline this school year. Seven, including Sigma Alpha Mu, received either deferred suspension or some form of probation. Two of those, Phi Kappa Si and Alpha Tau Omega, were suspended.
