The fraternity debate

Article link and excerpt 

“That’s a lot of schools to be shutting down Greek life all together at one time,” said Hank Nuwer, a journalism professor at Franklin College in Indiana who has been researching hazing deaths since the 1970s.

“There was such defensiveness, and the big words being used were these were ‘unfortunate accidents’ and ‘isolated incidents,’” said Nuwer, whose book, Hazing: Destroying Young Lives, is due out early next year. “That can’t happen now because there’s careful attention to minute-by-minute accounts.”
