An initiation ritual for a social club at Virginia State University has led to the apparent drowning deaths of two freshman and hazing charges for four others. The two freshmen, Jauwan M. Holmes and Marvell Edmondson, were trying to cross a river early on the morning of April 20 during an initiation for "Men of Honor," a social club not sanctioned by the university. The four men charged, each with five misdemeanor counts of hazing, are members of the group.
