FAMU Student Clubs to Resume Recruiting Members

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida A&M University is lifting a ban on student clubs and organizations from recruiting new members.
Former FAMU President James Ammons imposed the ban back in January following the hazing death of drum major Robert Champion and the arrests of several FAMU students on charges of hazing other students.
FAMU's vice president for student affairs announced Thursday the ban would be lifted next month.
But the university is putting in new academic requirements for members of fraternities, sororities and student clubs. Students must have completed their freshman year with at least 24 credit hours and a 2.0 grade point average.
Clubs and organizations will also be required to submit monthly reports on community service activities.
The university is also imposing mandatory orientation sessions for student organizations, including sessions on hazing.
