School officials said late Thursday that a fraternity at Cal State Northridge was under investigation for possible hazing, months after a pledge at a different Greek organization died during a mandatory hike.

In a letter posted by school newspaper the Daily Sundial, William Watkins, vice president for student affairs and dean of students, told sorority and fraternity presidents that the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity was being investigated for possible hazing.

This comes months after CSUN student Armando Villa, 19, died during what administrators concluded was a hazing incident while he pledged to a different fraternity. The dehydrated Pi Kappa Phi pledge died July 1 during a mandatory hike for students hoping to join the fraternity.

All pledging activity at Cal State Northridge was immediately suspended Thursday.
