Hazing can be physically, mentally and/or emotionally harmful for students who are hazed or those who haze them. One in three Cornell undergraduates experiences some form of hazing within student groups. These practices often involve coerced consumption of alcohol, sometimes to the point of life-threatening alcohol poisoning. 

Gannett partners with the Dean of Students Office to provide leadership in the University's efforts to eliminate hazing.
