Illinois College in Jacksonville is getting some attention and it's not for its academics.

Three students were taken to the hospital over the weekend after they got hurt during pledge activities.

Jacksonville Police say the school never called them. We asked the school why not, and they said it was an internal matter and it coudn't be discussed.

The school isn't releasing many details right now. No word on the student's conditions or who was involved.

Police plan to investigate the situation. There's no telling if there'll be any charges in this case.
