All 24 fraternities at Clemson University have been penalized after reports of violations of the school's student conduct code.

A 19-year-old pledge of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity died recently during a "group activity run" with the house's members, according to NBC News. Reports indicate the student fell from a bridge, causing a fatal head injury.

Several media outlets have criticized Clemson's widespread punishments because of a lack of evidence that the student's death was related to hazing. For more see this Newsy report:
