EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A fraternity at the University of Oregon has been shut down amid reports of hazing and other "risky behaviors."

Dr. Robin Holmes, the Vice President for Student Life said the university has worked with Beta Theta Pi's national headquarters for some time to address ongoing issues with the chapter.

However, reports of hazing and other high-risk behaviors were deemed unacceptable by the university and the national fraternity organization.

In the coming weeks the Office of Student Life will be taking a look at new fraternity and sorority life policies.

According to a report in the Daily Emerald, Holmes believes the new policies “will help curb these sorts of problems.”

Beta theta pi could try to become an active chapter again at the school, but not until the winter term of 2018.
