The University of Virginia is investigating a report of hazing at one of the fraternities on grounds.
Officials at UVa. are not saying which fraternity, or what the inappropriate behavior was.
All fraternities are required to initiate new members by Sunday night.
CBS19 asked fraternity leaders who they think is responsible for the hazing incident.
"For the most part, I think it's very select individuals," said Inter-Fraternity Council President Jake Pittman. "I wouldn't say it's just one fraternity, because we don't know what goes on within the walls. But I would say that, well over a majority of Green Men within the Inter-Fraternity Council do not approve of any of this kind of actions."
Leaders say, hazing allegations give fraternities a bad name and undo a lot the good they do in the community.
UVa. does have a hazing hotline for students who have been mistreated.
