It is often difficult to define hazing, as no one general definition exists. Let’s examine a few different definitions.

  • Any action or situation, with or without consent of the participants, which recklessly, intentionally, or unintentionally endangers the mental, physical, academic health, or safety of a student (University of Michigan)

  • Any activity expected of someone joining a group that humiliates, degrades, abuses, or endangers, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate (Alfred University)

The Code of Student Conduct at Bowling Green State University defines hazing as:

Any action or activity which does not contribute to the positive development of a person; which inflicts or intends to cause physical or mental harm or anxieties; and/or which demeans, degrades, or disgraces any person regardless of location, intent or consent of participant.

Any action or situation that, intentionally or unintentionally, humiliates, degrades, abuses, or endangers a student for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with any student organization or athletic team.

Though each definition may differ, they each convey the same message: Hazing is any behavior that may cause any sort of harm to a person joining a group, regardless of intent or consent of the participant.

As you can see, there are many different actions and behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.

Myth hazing is nothing more than pranks that go wrong l.jpg
Myth: behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.Hazing is nothing more than pranks that go wrong.

Fact: Hazing is an act of power and control. Accidents can happen during hazing, but hazing is not an accident. It is victimization. It is abusive, degrading, and can be life-threatening.

Myth as long as there is not malicious intent it is not hazing l.jpg
Myth: behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.As long as there is not malicious intent, it is not hazing.

Fact: There does not need to be malicious intent for hazing to occur. Hazing often occurs when those who are hazing others do not intend malicious harm. Safety is a major factor in hazing activities that many do not consider as intending to harm, i.e., scavenger hunts and kidnappings. However, serious accidents can occur in both of these incidences. Scavenger hunts often turn into races of who can finish the fastest, encouraging individuals to ignore road signs and laws. Individuals have been seriously injured from participating in kidnappings, suffering from condition such as hypothermia and sleep deprivation. Furthermore, when these incidents involve alcohol, there can be deadly consequences.

Myth behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.: Hazing is an effective way to teach respect and develop discipline.

Fact: Respect is earned, not taught. Individuals who were hazed rarely report having respect for those who hazed them. Furthermore, hazing is a form of victimization. It creates mistrust, hostility, alienation, and resentment, not respect and discipline. It teaches new members that “values” such as deception, coercion, and intimidation are acceptable means for achieving your goals.

Myth: behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.If someone agrees to participate in an activity, it is not hazing.

Fact: As mentioned before, consent is not a legal defense of hazing according to Ohio state law and BGSU policy. When someone is pressured by peers to participate in a dangerous activity in order to join a group, it is not true consent. The focus is on what you do, not whether they say you could.

Fact:Hazing may build unity among new members, but has costs as well. The effect of hazing can be compared to the effect of a hurricane: residents feel closer to each other but some are suffering.

Myth if it doesn t kill you it only makes you stronger l.jpg
Myth: behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.“If it doesn’t kill you, it only makes you stronger.”

Fact:If this statement is true, then child abuse, domestic violence, and torture would be prescriptions for personal growth. Though it is true that difficult situations can help individuals grow and develop, experiences that do not “kill” still do damage because of their psychological or physical impact (Cornell University, 2006).

Myth: behaviors that are classified as hazing. Indeed, there have also been many cases involving different student groups accused of hazing.It’s difficult to determine whether or not certain activities are considered hazing. Too much gray area exists.

Fact: It is easy to determine if activities are hazing by using common sense and answering the following questions:

  • Does the activity involve mental distress such as humiliation or intimidation?

  • Does it involve physical abuse or substance abuse?

  • Would you have any reservations describing the activity to your parents or a university official?

  • Would you have reservations describing the activity to your advisor/coach/professor/national office?

  • Is alcohol involved?

  • Would you be worried if the activity was shown on the evening news?

    (Adapted from Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Death By Hazing, 1988; Will Keim, Ph.D., "The Power of Caring“, 1990).

    If the answer to any of the above questions is yes,

    the activity is hazing.
