Excerpt: UWSP Looks Out for Hazing After Dance Team Incident

Hazing will not be tolerated at UW-Stevens Point. That’s the message University officials are sending out as the school year starts without any performances by the dance team.

The team is giving up their status as an official school organization, while the University checks out allegations that some new members were hazed after some suggestive photos showed up on the internet.

The UW-Stevens Point dance team isn’t admitting these photos show hazing. Still, members gave up their rights before other student groups could be affected in the University’s investigation.
