American higher education’s first recorded hazing death occurred at Kentucky’s Franklin Seminary in 1838. Since then hundreds more college students have died in hazing incidents. Thousands more have been physically and/or mentally damaged. HazingPrevention.org lists the following common consequences of hazing:
- Physical, emotional, and/or mental instability
- Sleep deprivation
- Loss of sense of control and empowerment
- Decline in grades and coursework
- Relationships with friends, significant others, and family suffer
- Post-traumatic stress syndrome
- Loss of respect for and interest in being part of the organization
- Erosion of trust within the group members
- Illness or hospitalization with additional effects on family and friends
The consequences for those who engage in hazing are no less severe. Suspension and expulsion, as well as civil and criminal legal liability, are all likely outcomes of hazing gone amuck.
