BGSU Expels 3, Suspends 17 After Investigation into Fraternity Hazing Death of Stone Foltz

Bowling Green State University released more details regarding the individual student conduct cases involving the former Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity in connection to the hazing death of 20-year-old Stone Foltz.

“All 21 students charged were found responsible for a total of 83 violations of the BGSU Code of Student Conduct, including hazing, harm to and endangering others and furnishing alcohol,” Alex Solis, university spokesperson, said in a statement released Friday.

“In total:

  • Three students were permanently expelled from the University
  • 17 students were suspended from the University for terms ranging from three to eight years
  • One student received a deferred suspension”

Foltz, a BGSU sophomore, was taken to Wood County Hospital and later to Toledo Hospital after an alleged incident of alcohol-related hazing at an off-campus initiation event for the fraternity. He died March 7 of a fatal ethanol intoxication.

The university permanently expelled the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity a month after Foltz’s death.
