Hazing scandal shuts down oldest signing group at Cornell University

Local News

The growing problem of hazing on college campuses now includes the world of a capella.

This after Cornell University “permanently dismissed” Cayuga Waiters, its oldest singing group.

According to Cornell’s Daily Sun, allegations surfaced of newer members of the group being forced to sit naked in ice baths and apply Icy Hot to their genitals.

The incidents in question allegedly happened back in the 2015-16 school year, but a university investigation revealed Cayuga Waiters conducted hazing methods as far back as a decade.

The group was first founded in 1949 and, over years and with different members, made 25 albums.
