Ohio University says it is now also investigating hazing allegations against the school’s marching band.

In a news release the university says it has ordered the Marching 110 to stop all non-academic group activities.  Members of the Marching 110 are required to enroll in marching band courses for academic credit so members will be allowed to perform at athletic events and this weekend’s Homecoming Parade.

The university also says it is working to speed up the investigatory process into all the recent allegations of hazing reported over the past month. It is also has a plan to reinstate the Interfraternity Council organizations not under cease and desist orders from the university. Those fraternities have permission to hold planning meetings and must submit their reinstatement plan by October 16.
