One of the largest fraternities in the U.S. says it will ban the pledging process to avoid any more hazing-related deaths.

At least ten deaths have been linked to events of  Sigma Alpha Epsilon since 2006.

Under the new plan, pledges will become full members almost immediately after being invited to join.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon is based in Evanston, Illinois.

There have been more than 60 fraternity-related deaths since 2005.
