KENT, Ohio (AP) — Kent State University has suspended a fraternity for hazing and other violations.

The Akron Beacon Journal ( ) reports that the Gamma Tau chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi was suspended for three years.

The newspaper said an Oct. 7 letter the university sent to the chapter cited a "recent history of violations" and "other investigations of misconduct related to membership intake activity."

The letter doesn't explain exactly what the fraternity did, and a Kent State spokesman declined to comment on the suspension. The fraternity and its national organization haven't commented on the suspension.

The fraternity became the first black organization on the Kent campus in 1949. It does not have a house on campus.

The chapter did not appeal the suspension.
