August 22, 2012

Humboldt State University announced Tuesday that it was calling off the men's soccer season for the fall. A statement from the university said that the decision "stems from a party held off-campus Aug. 4, which involved more than 20 members of the soccer team. There were multiple instances of hazing designed to humiliate and degrade certain players. There was also highly dangerous level of alcohol use and underage drinking, though no students received medical attention." The university also said that it is investigating allegations of hazing involving the women's soccer team.
