Starting this week, about 20 million students will be arriving on college campuses for the fall semester, and while classrooms fill up, fraternities, sports teams and clubs of all kinds will open their rolls to new students and, inevitably, to initiation rites that can include hazing. Not just embarrassing or humiliating pranks, but physical abuse and serious physical peril, even death.

We the Greek community, are not bad people, we are simply misjudged.
CSUN’s efforts to prevent hazing have been nothing short of exceptional in order to ensure the quality of the Greek community on campus. The school has done everything from curating workshops, which are mandatory for students to attend to even halting recruitment during the Spring semester of 2015.
