The video includes a person forcing another person to his knees and asking him to repeat an "oath", the Daily Orange reported.

School officials say the videos involved members of the Syracuse University chapter of Theta Tau, a professional engineering fraternity.

Syracuse University's Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities suspended the fraternity, effectively halting all activities, after confirming Theta Tau's involvement, according to the statement.

"I am appalled and shaken by this and deeply concerned for all members of our community", Syverud wrote.

A fraternity at Syracuse University has been suspended after racist anti-Semitic videos of members surfaced in the student newspaper.

Dozens of other people can be seen in the background, watching and laughing.

According to the statement, Syracuse's Department of Public Safety are now investigating the footage to identify members involved and are planning to seek additional legal and disciplinary actions against them.

"What happened at Theta Tau serves as a reminder that violations of codes of honor, behavior and values will be met with swift and appropriate consequences", he said.

But students were demanding more be done and a protest began a few hours ago with several hundred students gathered demanding the video and systemic issues be addressed immediately.

The video was posted on a secret Facebook group called "Tau of Theta Tau", the paper reported.

The university has not released the footage, citing the ongoing investigation, but part of the video was available on The Daily Orange's website as of late Wednesday evening.

SU's administrators have declined to release the videos. "We may not solve all our problems overnight, but together we can identify how to move forward as one community".

Theta Tau's videos, which come after national attention to racist incidents at fraternities across the country in recent years, emerged after three other frats have already been suspended at Syracuse this school year. The university suspended the Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity last week following a months-long investigation into hazing.
