A 42-year-old University of Connecticut dining hall worker who was spending the night at the school on storm duty has been found dead on a cot where he was sleeping.
School spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz says James Perkins of Ashford has been working at the school since 2003. He was found unresponsive Monday morning inside McMahon Hall, a dormitory with its own dining hall.
His body was turned over to the state medical examiner for an autopsy, but Reitz says foul play is not suspected.
The University of Connecticut has banned three more Greek organizations for hazing, saying students were forced to eat pet food, bob for mini-bottles of alcohol from toilets and be partly or fully nude.
The University of Connecticut's Board of Trustees has unanimously approved a $1.18 billion budget for the next fiscal year.
The budget represents a 4.6 percent increase in spending over 2014 levels and includes a previously approved tuition hike of 6.5 percent.
The budget allows for the hiring of 61 new faculty members, part of a plan approved in 2011 to add almost 300 positions by 2016. The school says the hiring will make classes more available and allow more students to graduate in four years.
The University of Connecticut has revoked the registration and recognition of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority after a hazing investigation.
A UConn sophomore alleged that the sorority took her and others to a fraternity house in March and forced them to commit humiliating acts, including being told to lie on the floor and pretend to "sizzle like bacon." She said she was then pressured to drink alcohol to the point of passing out.
