FAMU Band Suspension Lifted
TALLAHASSEE- Florida A&M University's Marching 100 band is reinstated after 2 years of suspension.
The announcement was made on thursday by the university's administrators.
The Marching 100 was suspended after drum major, Robert Champion died due to a hazing incident in 2011. Champion's parents criticized the lift, and said that the University cares more about profits than people.
Since the incident, the school has placed new measures into action, giving students the opportunity to anonymously give tips on any hazing incidents they have knowledge of, through a website.
