Others, including underage students were hospitalized after being forced to drink copious amounts of booze The Yale Daily News reports.
Yale Police Chief Ronnell A. Higgins notified the campus police received information about a possible sexual assault involving undergraduate.
The events are still under investigation.
At least one of the attendees seemed to think the party was nothing more than usual, rowdy, college hijinks, according to the Police report.
Yale College Dean Mary Miller said: "I am deeply disturbed by initial reports of heavy drinking by underage students in a context that could be construed as hazing.
“Yale College does not tolerate hazing or intimidation: I’m well aware that a feature of hazing is that it can be difficult for someone victimized by it to come forward.”
