The pyschology behind the culture of hazing

By

Governor Rick Scott is calling on university presidents today to take action in light of the recent hazing death in the Florida A&M marching band. Scott asked the presidents of all eleven Florida universities to review anti-hazing rules and penalties. Robert Champion was a drum major in the band and was found dead earlier this month after suspected hazing. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Steven Gallo spoke with Hank Nuwer who is a professor at Franklin College in Indiana and the author of four books on hazing.
