University investigates ‘Nazi-style’ initiation ceremony by drunken students

It is hardly the most edifying moment of their university careers. Wearing plastic bags over their heads and taking orders from a fellow student dressed as a Nazi, they stand in a line vomiting in broad daylight before being frogmarched down a residential street.

Their shocking behaviour is understood to form part of an initiation ceremony which they must undertake before being accepted as members of a university sports team.

The students are believed to be rugby or hockey players – well known within the campus at the University of Gloucestershire for their outrageous behaviour.

The video footage is a great embarrassment to the university, which has claimed to have banned initiation ceremonies among student societies.

It was filmed by student Natalie Sutton, 20, who said she had taken part in similar activities herself before joining the women’s hockey team at the university in Cheltenham.

She said she was forced to eat cat food surrounded by fellow students who were crying and throwing up.

Yesterday a spokesman for the university said disciplinary action would be taken against the students when they were identified.

It is understood the male students were put through the initiation ceremony towards the end of last year. It is not known if they still attend the university.
