Three students have been hospitalized in hazing incidents at Illinois College in Jacksonville this year.  Now, school officials are calling for an end to pledging.  Privacy laws prohibit the college from releasing specific details but a spokesperson says at least one student had life-threatening injuries.  All seven literary societies are prohibited from pledging for the rest of this year.  The groups will still be allowed to function on campus but all pledging activity must stop.  Those pledges that were going through the orientation process will be allowed into the societies.
