New Vocab: Hazing

Hazing is the practice of rituals, challenges, and other activities involving harassment, abuse or humiliation used as a way of initiating a person into a group including a new fraternity, sorority, team, or club.

Hazing
In earlier decades, NYMA’s official regulations permitted a certain level of hazing and physical discipline by supervisors and older cadets, although the academy’s senior administrators were forced to resign after a particularly severe incident in 1964.[24][25][26] Also, in 1963, senior-year cadet Donald Trump was transferred from a student command position after the alleged hazing of a new freshman in his barracks by one of Trump’s subordinates; Trump describes the transfer as “a promotion”.[27] While hazing later became forbidden by the school’s rules and policies, a lawsuit was settled in which it had been claimed that physical and emotional abuse in the form of hazing had taken place in 2005.[28] NYMA cited adverse publicity from the 2005 incident as one of the reasons the school nearly closed in 2010.[2

A fraternity or sorority is a group of men or women formed by a brotherhood or sisterhood and common goals and aspirations who make a commitment to each other for life. The members that form a fraternity or sorority share their efforts, friendship and knowledge.
