How to Identify Positive New Member Activities

Make the following inquiries of each activity to determine whether or not it is hazing.

  1. Is this activity an educational experience?
  2. Is this activity in line with my personal values or the values of my organization?
  3. Does this activity ensure emotional and physical safety for all involved?
  4. Is this activity something I would want to share with my parents, to a professor, or a university official?
  5. Would I be proud to be photographed during this activity?

If the answer to any of these questions is "no," the activity may be hazing.
