The Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter at the University of Central Florida has been placed on interim suspension, pending an investigation after hazing allegations landed on the desk of the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. According to a UCF official, as confirmed by Knight News, a TKE pledge emailed his professor asking for extra time to complete his homework assignment. His reason? He was amid Hell Week and was unable to get to it.

This is why we can’t have nice things.

From Knight News:

The fraternity was placed on interim suspension after a pledge of the Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter sent an e-mail to College Algebra professor Mr. Plemmons asking if he could have extra time on his homework.

“This week was hell week where I had to stay at the house all week and do many various tasks, this weekend I was initiated and had no time to do homework,” the pledge stated in the e-mail to Professor Plemmons.

Professor Plemmons sent an e-mail to Director of Student Affairs Clay Coleman asking if it was normal for a fraternity to not allow a student to go to class during “hell week.”

This TKE pledge class falls in line and continues the nationwide, storied tradition of being the worst pledge class of all time.
