(Harrisburg) -- A Penn State fraternity linked to a secret Facebook page where photos of nude and semi-nude women were posted is getting a three-year suspension after the school's Interfraternity Council recommended a milder punishment. 

The university says its investigation found some Kappa Delta Rho members had engaged in sexual harassment, hazing that included boxing matches and a "persistent climate of humiliation for several females.''

PSU's vice president for student affairs says the sum of the fraternity's misbehavior is more than the school will tolerate. 

A university spokeswoman says the university canceled the fraternity's recognition as a campus organization as of yesterday, and the status will remain until May 2018. 

A phone message left at the State College chapter house wasn't immediately returned.
