9 Signs Your Friends are Being Hazed

We hope none of our sisters haze. The goal: for each chapter to offer an amazing, values-based experience to its new members. If you do, sweet! (If you’re not, well, first, recognize hazing is not helping you build sisterhood. Second, just stop.)

However, we know that hazing is a problem that exists beyond ZTA, beyond fraternities and sororities, and even beyond colleges.

Have friends with one or more of the following symptoms? Call the Hazing Hotline 1-888-NOT-HAZE.

1. Older members confuse their car for a taxi.

National Hazing Prevention Week 2013 was Sept. 23-27. To educate our members and others about hazing prevention, Zeta Tau Alpha developed lists (inspired by BuzzFeed) to highlight positive member experiences and combat hazing. While these lists might be funny, hazing is not a joke. Join ZTA to end hazing by doing the right thing, for the right reason, all the time.
