FAIRFIELD - Dozens rallied outside Sacred Heart University in Fairfield today, calling for the school's Greek organizations to stop hazing and bullying other students.

The rally took place on Park Avenue and comes almost one year after Jasmine Vega said she was violently hazed by girls in a sorority she was trying to join.

Vega claims that she was kidnapped and forced to do army drills while pledging a Sacred Heart sorority last October.

Vega says the school has made it hard for her to graduate and tried to keep her from talking.

Sacred Heart administrators say they feel they took appropriate action in the case last year.
