This isn't the first time the fraternity has faced troubling accusations.

In 2017, the fraternity was suspended for "reckless alcohol use, hazing and inappropriate sexually based behavior," according to the university.

"The FIJI house is what I hear the most has a bad reputation and repeat offenders, especially when it's roofie-ing and something predetermined is so disgusting, and I think that the campus has to do something about that," Hannah Howard, a sophomore, told the Nebraskan.

On Tuesday, the school's student government team released a statement on Twitter in support of the protests while the fraternity said in a statement it was cooperating with authorities conducting the investigation.
