Hazing Education & Prevention

Welcome to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Please read through our various hazing specific policies, educational programs and explore our resources.

Georgia Southern University Hazing Policy

Hazing

a. Any act, intentional or unintentional, which endangers the emotional, mental, financial, physical health or safety of a Student, with or without their expressed permission, or which destroys or removes public or private property, for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a group or organization.

b. Any act, intentional or unintentional, which causes physical discomfort, embarrassment and/or ridicule of another person for the purposes mentioned above participation in Hazing, either by facilitating or encouraging the act, or allowing oneself to be subject to acts of Hazing.

Reporting Hazing

The Hazing Hotline has been set up as a way for individuals to anonymously report acts of hazing on the Georgia Southern University campus. All calls to the Hazing Hotline will be handled in a confidential manner. We thank all those willing to join the fight to stop hazing in our community by reporting any acts of hazing that they may be aware of on our campus.

Report Hazing 24/7 at Georgia Southern Hazing Hotline: 1-888-893-6554
