“The implementation of collaborative efforts to coordinate resources and planning that will establish the most effective climate for growth and development. It is not meant to be synonymous with control.”

Security Around Campus
  • BE ALERT. Your safety depends mostly on your own attitude and actions.
    • Make a record of any valuable property which has unique serial numbers, such as computer, stereo or television equipment. Marking and recording your property in this way will aid in recovery in case of loss or theft. University Police can advise you on securing your bike and will help you select a sturdy lock. Bikes properly secured with good locks are rarely stolen.
  • Park your car in a well lit area and keep it locked at all times. Don't leave valuables where they can be seen in your vehicle; lock them in your trunk. The college assumes no responsibility for loss of or damage to personal property.REPORT CRIME

myth or fact
Myth or Fact

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.

current example
Current Example
  • Wisconsin Marching Band
  • On a bus trip to Michigan (2006)
    • female band members were forced to kiss each other to gain access to the bus bathroom
    • at least one member had his head shaved against his will
    • at least one female member was forced to mimic fellatio on a sex toy.
  • The University of Wisconsin marching band has been suspended indefinitely while allegations of hazing, alcohol abuse and sexual misconduct are investigated. (2008)
myth or fact101
Myth or Fact

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.

myth or fact103
Myth or Fact

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.

  • Northwestern Women’s Soccer
    • Photos appeared Monday on the website purporting to show hazing of freshman soccer players last summer. The pictures included women in underwear being blindfolded and with hands bound. At least one photo showed a woman drinking what appears to be a beer while another shows two women apparently kissing.
myth or fact107
Myth or Fact

Hazing is an affective way to teach respect and develop discipline.



  • Respect must be EARNED-not taught.
  • Successful leaders motivate through positive role modeling.
  • Hazing is often an effective way to stop people from being engaged in a group.
  • Hazing breeds mistrust, apathy and alienation.
myth or fact109
Myth or Fact

If someone agrees to participate in an activity, it can’t be considered hazing.



  • In Texas if you participate in hazing you are just as guilty as the person who is hazing you if you don’t report it.
  • Pressured consent does not make everything okay.
myth or fact111
Myth or Fact

It’s difficult to decide if an activity is hazing.

  • Asking a member to sing I’m a Little Teapot in the student union over lunch.
  • Having a new member (who doesn’t like to dance) approach a girl at a bar and ask them to dance.
  • Having all members wear a shirt and tie on Fridays.
  • Having new members carry all the bags when the team is traveling.
  • Blindfolding someone and taking them to an event.
  • When scheduling having new member pick their hours last.
  • Having freshmen park the furthest away from the campus.
  • Hosting a toga party.


  • Is alcohol involved?
  • Will active/current members of the group refuse to participate with the new members and do exactly what they are being asked to do?
  • Does the activity risk emotional or physical abuse?
  • Do you have any reservations describing the activity to your parents, to a professor or university official?
  • Would you object to the activity being photographed for the school newspaper for filmed by a local TV news crew?
