BREAKING: PSU shines light on 5 years of hazing violations

Local News

Penn State published their initial report on hazing violations this afternoon. This five-year report is a new requirement under the Timothy J. Piazza Antihazing Law.

The law is named after Timothy Piazza, who died tragically in February 2017 after hazing at the now permanently closed Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

Student safety is a top priority at Penn State and the university follows a no-tolerance policy on hazing. The report was published January 15 and the reports must be updated biannually on January 1 and August 1 of every year.

The report takes information from the Student Conduct Office and other areas of the university, including dates, campus location and description of sanctions for violations of hazing at the University.

The law requires that all organizations whose members are primarily students, including athletic teams, service organizations, clubs, and other groups are included in the report.
