Fort Collins, Colo. (AP) - Colorado State University has withdrawn recognition of a sorority after an investigation into several alleged incidents of hazing, including being deprived of food and sleep.

University officials on the Fort Collins campus temporarily suspended Zeta Phi Beta Sorority in April and permanently withdrew recognition August 5.

A police report obtained by the Rocky Mountain Collegian Newspaper says pledges to the nationally chartered black sorority says they were forced to eat cat food and perform 'strenuous physical activity' that made one student seek medical attention.

Colorado State Spokeswoman Dell Rae Moellenberg says University Police investigated the allegations and contacted the DA, who won't file any charges.

The Collegian reports that the school disciplined four students.
