Joseph Richardson, Esq., will speak with members of SJC Long Island Greek life organizations on Wednesday, Feb. 6, about the dangers of hazing and the legal issues that surround it. He will present in the McGann Conference Center during common hour and again from 5–6 p.m.
According to “Hazing in View: Students at Risk,” researchers found that “more than half of college students involved in clubs, teams and organizations experience hazing.” The highest percentage of hazing is experienced by students in fraternities and sororities (73 percent), as well as athletic teams (74 percent).
In light of the 2017 hazing-related death of Penn State University student Timothy Piazza, 19, it is especially important that members of Greek life organizations understand the serious ramifications of hazing, College officials said.
