Hazing at University Results In Wrongful Deaths

This blog is sponsored by Tucker Griffin Barnes, Attorneys at Law.

The Daily Progress recently wrote about the death of two VSU students during organizational hazing. Hazing has been a rite of passage for decades when students join sororities, fraternities, and other groups. It can range from “soft hazing” such as being blindfolded and forced to sing songs in an unknown location to dangerous activities. In recent years, the national-level leadership of such organizations have denounced or even banned hazing. Unfortunately, some groups are still involved in the ritual. The article discusses the difficulties colleges and universities have in policing this risky behavior.
