National Hazing Prevention Week; Students required to take hazing course


Erik Feliciano, Reporter

Hazing has resulted in the tragic deaths of students in Universities across the nation. This week marks the start of National Hazing Prevention Week, which is meant for people to continue to educate and spread awareness to ourselves and one another on the dangers of hazing and how to stop it.

In an email from the university, it is stated that all students are required to complete UNF’s Hazing Prevention Initiative.

  1. Complete the Hazing Prevention 101 online course.
  2. Complete other applicable courses based on your student group affiliations. 
  3. Review UNF’s Prohibition Against Hazing Regulation.

All of these tasks must be completed by September 30, 2020.

Over the weekend, provided a program to draw awareness to hazing in “Love, Mom and Dad: Turning Tragedy into Progress” which can still be viewed on the facebook page.

The University has also provided resources to answer any of your questions regarding hazing and assist you in any way that you need.
