Traumatic Experiences
221
If you personally witness hazing activity, you should call
campus police or local police immediately so they can stop
the hazing and appropriately address it.
What to look for
Students are involved in many ways at colleges and
universities and come into contact with staff and other
community members frequently. They spend the most time,
however, with faculty in classes, lectures, laboratories, and
through other academic work. Therefore, it is critical that
you as a faculty member know the signs of hazing to look for
and what to do. Some of the signs of a student experiencing
hazing are:
fatigue, having a tough time staying awake, or sleeping in
class
an unkempt appearance, or wearing conspicuously
strange or silly clothing
falling behind in his/her work or performance
change of attitude or personality in class
You may notice when one of your students begins to be
involved with a student group if s/he is wearing clothes or
other identifying articles, such as a fraternity or sorority pin,
or clothes identified with a team or other student group.
While those alone are no reason for concern, but if they are
linked with the above signs, they should draw your attention.
