College Student Hazing Experiences, Attitudes, and Perceptions: Implications for Prevention
Allan, Elizabeth J.; Kerschner, David; Payne, Jessica M.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v56 n1 p32-48 2019
This investigation reports findings from survey data collected from 5,880 students enrolled at seven U.S. research universities. Building on previous studies, this investigation found that hazing occurred across a range of student groups and included high-risk drinking, social isolation, personal servitude, and humiliation. Although students tended to have pro-social attitudes and did not believe hazing was beneficial to their organizations, some reported positive outcomes. Research-informed recommendations for campus hazing prevention are provided.
