Rider Closes ZBT Chapter

Second Frat Shut Down at Rider

Rider University has closed its second fraternity in less than a year.

The university's chapter of Zeta Beta Tau was shut down last week. The fraternity had violated campus policies and was serving a probation sentence, university officials said.

Zeta Beta Tau brothers were told they can no longer live in their chapter's house and will be forced to move into campus housing for the spring semester.

The fraternity joins Phi Kappa Tau as the second such organization to be shut down by the university since last spring.

Rider closed Phi Kappa Tau following the suspected hazing in the death of freshman pledge Gary DeVercelly Jr., who had drank a large amount of alcohol. Its chapter president said hazing wasn't involved in DeVercelly's death.
