Ohio U halts activities of The Marching 110 following hazing allegations

2 min read

The Ohio University Marching 110 was issued an order from the school administration Thursday afternoon to immediately stop all non-academic activities due to hazing allegations brought against members of the group.

The Marching 110, however, will still perform at the homecoming football game and parade, as well other future athletic events. This is because members of the band are technically enrolled in the organization for academic credit, and participation in these events is required as part of the group’s curriculum, according to a statement from Ohio U.

The hazing allegations brought against members of The Marching 110 arrived following the suspension of 15 greek life fraternities at Ohio U last week, which made headlines across the nation. The administration also opened investigations into several other greek life organizations on campus over the past week due to hazing allegations.

Ohio U mentioned in its statement that The Division of Student Affairs is developing a website to post updates related to student organization violations of the university Student Code of Conduct.

The Marching 110 is not the not the first collegiate band in the state to be accused of hazing its members.

In 2014, Ohio State University fired Jon Waters, its marching band director, and released a statement condemning him for failing to prevent rampant hazing reported within the organization, according to The New York Times.
