This year over one and half million students in high school will experience some form of hazing. In many cases the consequences for them and everyone involved, including the school, will be monumental. Hazing can cause long lasting physical and emotional injury as well as creating significant legal problems for school administrators and districts.Now there’s a new set of DVD presentations, produced through NIAAA, which focus on the problem of hazing, the possible consequences and what can be done about it.“Dying to Belong” is aimed at parents and students and examines the cause and effect of the problem while offering practical advice on how students can stop the abuse.

“Hazing-Break the Tradition, or Break the Law” provides information and a plan of action to assist athletic directors, coaches, school administrators, teachers and other school staff to understand and find solutions for this growing problem.

Each State’s laws are listed at the end of the DVD in a PDF file for your reference.

Remember, you and your school are liable for incidences of hazing.
