Over the weekend Salisbury Police broke up an outdoor bashed by Salisbury University students.

It occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday where around 500 people were gathered outside the residents at Cedar Crossing dubbed the New Zoo by students.

Students said it was similar to a “War on the Shore” party.

This year the lacrosse game against Washington College was held during spring break when most students were not on campus.

The Maryland State Senate has given its blessing to increasing the penalties for hazing.

The measure by state senator Jamie Raskin would up the criminal penalty from $500 to $5-thousand with jail time capped at six months.

The legislation came as a result of hazing incident at Sigma Alpha Epsilon on the campus of Salisbury University.

Pledges were reportedly kept in a dark basement for many hours without food water or bathroom breaks while techno music was played at a loud volume.

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - A fraternity suspended for hazing a Salisbury University says it has eliminated the pledging process for members.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports the new policy took effect Sunday and affects all of Sigma Alpha Epsilon's 226 chapter and 15 colonies nationwide.

In a statement posted online the fraternity says it will treat all members "equally and fairly" regardless of their tenure.

The Maryland General Assembly took up a proposal to increase the penalty for hazing after a hazing case involving a Salisbury University fraternity.

The measure by state senator Jamie Raskin would increase the penalty from $500 to $5-thousand with a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail.

Andrea Goodwin, director of student conduct at University of Maryland College Park, told a senate committee that having a crime like hazing could change Greek life.

For the first time Salisbury University listed a notice about two suspended fraternities on its campus website in late January.

In addition, a campus-wide email was issued around the extended suspension of Greek social fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon for hazing.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the action follows criticism by elected officials and others after details became public about alleged hazing and illegal alcohol use at some of the University’s Greek organizations.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon suspension at Salisbury University has been extended another 15 months.

The Greek social fraternity was initially suspended for a year and a half following hazing and alcohol abuse allegations.

The suspension has been extended because of charges that the campus chapter had been recruiting members while on suspension.

That is a violation of the conditions for reinstatement.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the fraternity would return in the summer of 2015 and stretches a post-suspension probationary period to 2017.
