Rochester Institute of Technology’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life is offering programming in support of National Hazing Prevention Week, which is a weeklong event celebrated on college campuses across the country. While the activities vary between institutions, the message is the same: stop hazing.
RIT is inviting all Rochester area campuses to attend its programming, which features a presentation and a panel discussion. “The Message is Simple: An Anti-hazing Presentation” will be shown at noon on Monday, Sept. 22, and Tuesday, Sept. 23, in RIT’s Student Alumni Union.
The panel discussion, “Oh! The Drama: Redefining Hazing” will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, in the Student Alumni Union’s Ingle Auditorium. The panel will discuss sports hazing, hazing in high schools, how hazing affects men and women differently and other effects of hazing practices.
