UTA Hazing Prevention Week

 

University of Texas at Arlington hosted Hazing Prevention Week, which is most commonly known to happen in Greek life with rituals for incoming students joining a fraternity or a sorority. Hazing can be humiliating and even dangerous. Students should know the do’s and don’t’s when it comes to peer pressure, but also know that it is important to speak up if they ever witness it happening.
