TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The University of Arizona kicked the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity off campus for what school officials said were multiple violations of the Arizona Board of Regent's Code of Conduct.

The school sent an email on Monday that says members of the fraternity, also called FIJI, faced allegations of hazing, giving alcohol to minors at about 20 events while on probation and "conspired to not cooperate with campus officials or police." UA Dean of Students Kendall Washington White said students in connection with the investigation could face fines, suspension or expulsion.

"The probation period was their opportunity to remedy the situation and they did not take it," White stated in a news release. "The withdrawal of recognition is the most serious punishment the university can enact on a student organization, but we will not hesitate if we find it's needed."

The UA investigated the fraternity after one of its members died in April from falling off a cooling tower on top of the Colonia de la Paz dorm on campus.

FIJI will be able to return as a recognized fraternity at the UA in April 2019. White said FIJI could ask the UA for additional review to start over as a recognized student organization with all new members at the end of the Spring 2017 semester if there are no active members left at the university.

As of August 2014, just one other UA fraternity is being investigated for hazing and alcohol violations, and five fraternities are under sanctions for suspected alcohol and probation violations.

No sororities are under judicial review.
