As you consider membership in any recognized club or organization, please understand that the University does not condone hazing in any form. If you suspect you are being hazed or if you know someone is being hazed, I strongly encourage you to report your observations; do not assume that nothing serious will happen as a result of the hazing activity. For more information on what constitutes hazing or to find out more information on how to report an incident, please visit www.albany.edu/stophazing or email hazing@albany.edu.
