NBC4 Los Angeles cites hazing study

NBC4 Los Angeles included research from a 2008 University of Maine study in a report about a woman’s vow to change college culture 12 years after her son died in a fraternity hazing ritual in Chico, California. “Hazing in View: College Students at Risk,” conducted by researchers Elizabeth Allan and Mary Madden, found that 55 percent of college students involved in groups and organizations have experienced or witnessed hazing. NBC4 reported the findings are a more conservative estimate compared to other studies that found the number is as high as 65 or 70 percent.
