Two Florida A&M University music professors who allegedly were present while band members were being hazed have been forced to resign. Their lawyers confirmed that both resigned after being given notices the university intended to fire them.   In addition, here at the University of Florida, 9 Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity members have been charged with hazing, using paddles to quote thunderslap pledges when they failed to recite information and answer quiz questions about the fraternity.  Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Alyssa Averette spoke with Dr. Susan Lipkins, a psychologist and an expert in campus violence and hazing.
