The content you are presenting, ex. Might it cause a disturbance?
Food, Make sure there is no cross contamination or safety violations being violated.
Activity, is there going to be a big crowd, do you need to have security?

90% of college women will be raped by an acquaintance while only 33% of men will know their attacker.
42% of college women who are raped tell no one of the assault. Only 5% of rape incidents are reported to the police, however 10 times more rapes will be reported to a crisis line.
WHOEVER IS INITIAING THE SEXUAL CONTACT, REGARLESS OF THEIR GENDER, IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BEING SURE THE OTHER PERSON IS CONSENTING THAT CONTACT.
CONSENT IS ABOUT SAYING “YES!” MUCH MORE THAN IT IS ABOUT NOT HEARING “NO!”

Hazing is a problem for fraternities and sororities primarily.
Hazing is a societal problem. Hazing incidents have been frequently documented in the military, athletic teams, marching bands religious cults and other types of clubs and/or organizations.
Hazing is no more than foolish pranks that sometimes go awry.
Hazing is an act of power and control over others – it is victimization. Hazing is premeditated and not accidental. Hazing is abusive, degrading and are at times life-threatening.
As long as there’s no malicious intent, a little hazing should be o.k.
Even if there’s no malicious “intent”, safety may still be a factor in traditional hazing activities that are considered to be all in good fun.
Hazing is an affective way to teach respect and develop discipline.
If someone agrees to participate in an activity, it can’t be considered hazing.
It’s difficult to decide if an activity is hazing.
