College Student Allergic To Peanuts Hazed With Peanut Butter

Authorities are investigating a Central Michigan University hazing incident in which a member of an off-campus fraternity smeared peanut butter on the face of a student with a peanut allergy while he was passed out, according to the victim's mother and the university.

“He could have been killed,” Teresa Seely, the mother of now-former-CMU student Andrew Seely, wrote in a Facebook post this morning.

The incident happened in October, but Teresa Seely said her son kept the matter to himself until telling family Tuesday night. Now, she said, she wants parents and others to know about what happened to her 19-year-old son, who completed one semester at the Mt. Pleasant school before transferring because of the incident. She declined to identify the new school to protect her son from potential retaliation.

University spokeswoman Heather Smith said today that school officials are investigating the incident, but campus police have no jurisdiction because the fraternity where it is alleged to have happened, Alpha Chi Rho, is located in a house off campus. Mt. Pleasant Police said today that they have yet to receive a report on the incident.

Smith said the university is investigating for potential violations of the student code of conduct, violations of which carry penalties including suspensions and permanent dismissal in serious cases.

The fraternity was banned from official recognition for hazing incidents in 2011, and Smith said its bids for reinstatement as late as last fall were denied by the university and its interfraternity council.

“We’re trying to learn more,” Smith said. “We take these types of matters seriously, and it will be pursued very thoroughly.”

Call me crazy, but he probably didn't tell his mom because he didn't want this to happen. Maybe she didn't tell where he went to school, but the fact that we have his name and a swollen photo kind of gives it away. I'm glad he's not hurt, but come on...let your son be a man.

Anyone who is found to take part in hazing a person like this should be expelled AND prosecuted.

This is what happens when snowflakes are being told by liberal zombies, that they should all go to university and 'become someone'. No retards, you can't and you won't. You are not all smart and/or talented. You do not all deserve to go to university and enjoy an education. The world needs car washers, McDonald's workers and airport toilet cleaners! You will just waste money, time and still be a nobody, cleaning toilets, with a worthless sociology degree that was given to you by an equally retarded teacher, who hands out A's like candies.
This poor kid. I hope he sues.
